    As of last September, Gaia's Public Lands map did show stream easements and other public lands. At some point over the winter, this data was removed. No idea why this happened.

    @Mkennedy1061 reached out to us privately via email and we got this issue sorted. Here was the resolution for anyone who's interested:

    The Public Land (US) overlay is sourced from data provided by USGS/ PAD-US.  The stream easement data is only available from Wisconsin DNR.

    The DNR data is not currently available from PAD-US.  It is possible that the data was available in PAD-US previously and is now no longer available. Sorry for the confusion.

    However, the WI DNR data is available for public use here: https://data-wi-dnr.opendata.arcgis.com/

    You can import a custom map by following these steps:

    I appreciate your response, but I still couldn't locate the data on https://data-wi-dnr.opendata.arcgis.com/ 

    More specifically, if you go to https://dnrmaps.wi.gov/H5/?Viewer=Public_Access_Lands  and check the layer "leased hunting -> Volunteer Public Access (VPA)" - that's what I'm looking for. 

    That data/layer is available in both OnxHunt and Basemap  without having to go through steps outlined in your response. 

     

    Thank you

    Hey khel25,

    Unfortunately, the Volunteer Public Access (VPA) data isn't available in the same format as the DNR data and cannot be easily imported to Gaia GPS.

    We don't currently have any plans to add the Wisconsin VPA layer to Gaia GPS.

    If you have any questions, email support@gaiagps.com.
