Resources and Tools

At the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, a critical part of our mission is to be a resource for researchers, practitioners, policymakers, and the media. The Institute provides both practical tools that include case studies, model representations, and best practices, and extensive information resources in the form of databases. The following Resources and Tools are grouped into four categories:

Databases, includes free access to data on the property tax and public finance, land values, urban expansion worldwide, and real estate development by universities in urban neighborhoods.

Planning and Management, includes resources on measuring fiscal impact, conflict resolution and mediation in land use disputes, and the management of state trust lands in the West.

Tax Tools, includes a full library resource on property taxation and valuation, and a site devoted to property tax issues in Latin America.

Visualization includes practical guides to designing density or making public presentations on future scenarios and regional planning initiatives for planners and others.
