Stakeholders originally identified foundational elements as the most critical Wisconsin geospatial layers for supporting a wide range of business needs and policy decisions. Since 1990, foundational elements have been incorporated into the WLIP requirements for county and state agency land information planning, as well as the WLIP-related funding of county land information activities.
The 12 data-related foundational element categories are described below. The current WLIP foundational elements described in the current Uniform Instructions for Preparing County Land Information Plans are slightly more narrow because they specifically focus on County Land Information Plans.
