The Colorado Ownership and Management and Protection (COMaP) dataset is a compilation of many disparate spatial datasets from around Colorado. Current contributors to the project include: U.S. Forest Service, National Park Service, Bureau of Land Management, Fish and Wildlife Service, Colorado State Parks, Colorado State Land Board, Colorado Division of Wildlife, and The Nature Conservancy. Contributions from these agencies and groups have been essential to the success of this project.
Users are expressly prohibited from redistributing this dataset. All requests for the dataset should be sent to email@example.com. This allows us to maintain a distribution list so that we can efficiently notify users of updates and changes, and we are required to limit redistribution per our agreement with some of our primary data providers. Although the majority of the COMaP dataset shows publicly-owned lands, there are also inputs regarding conservation on privately-owned lands.
There are two versions of COMaP. One, the “public” version, includes all publicly-owned lands (and GOCO-supported private lands), and is named with the suffix: *_public.gdb. Another version, the “private” version, includes all of the afore mentioned lands plus additional protected areas on privately-owned lands; it is named with the suffix *_private.gdb. Only COMaP collaborators will have access to the dataset with privately-owned lands. COMaP collaborators are those partners who are actively providing primary data used in COMaP.
Users need to be aware that multiple datasets from multiple agencies were used to create COMaP. These input datasets have a range of publication dates, varying degrees of accuracy, various projections, and different attribute information. We have made every effort to standardize the multiple data inputs to create COMaP. We do not provide the original datasets from our primary data source providers.
Reproduction or redistribution of copyrighted digital data sets or products derived therefrom outside of licensees' organization or entity is expressly forbidden. The only exception is redistribution to consultants working for the licensee, and then only for purposes related to work for the licensee. Such consultants may not further reproduce or redistribute these data sets. None of these data shall be electronically duplicated on magnetic or optical media for use by others, in whole or in part, without permission of the appropriate staff at Colorado State University. Use of these data for commercial purposes is expressly prohibited.
Any hardcopies utilizing these data sets shall clearly indicate their source (i.e. COMaP vX). If the licensee has modified the data in any way they are obligated to describe the types of modifications they have performed on the hardcopy map. Licensee specifically agrees not to misrepresent these data sets, nor to imply that changes they made were approved by the Colorado Natural Heritage Program and Geospatial Centroid (CNHP/GC).

Any maps or derived products need to designate the various levels of public access. This must be done using map symbology and/or a printed statement on the map that public access is not allowed, unless expressly noted otherwise.
This data is based on and maintained with ArcGIS software developed by the Environmental Systems Research Institute (Esri). Much of the information presented uses conventions and terms popularized by ArcGIS and its user community. The CNHP/GC in no way represents the interests of Esri, nor acts as an agent for them.
The Colorado Natural Heritage Program and Geospatial Centroid (CNHP/GC) at Colorado State University make no guarantee or warranty concerning the accuracy of information contained in the geographic data. CNHP/GC further makes no warranties, either expressed or implied as to any other matter whatsoever, including, without limitation, the condition of the product, or its fitness for any particular purpose. The burden for determining fitness for use lies entirely with the user. Although these data have been processed successfully on computers of CNHP/GC, no warranty, expressed or implied, is made by CNHP/GC regarding the use of these data on any other system, nor does the fact of distribution constitute or imply any such warranty.
In no event shall the CNHP/GC have any liability whatsoever for payment of any consequential, incidental, indirect, special, or tort damages of any kind, including, but not limited to, any loss of profits arising out of use of or reliance on the geographic data or arising out of the delivery, installation, operation, or support by CNHP/GC.
