Re: E-M:/ Wetlands Mapping/repost from GLIN

Enviro-Mich message from "Matthew Johnstone" <JOHNSTOM@michigan.gov>

To map wetlands at a degree of spatial resolution that has any benefit
to either regulators or the regulated community requires a huge
commitment of time, money, and human resources - none of which the state
has had a surplus of in a very long time, if ever.  Anyone who has ever
worked in the field on wetland delineations knows this is an enormous
undertaking.
