State of Hawaii Opens Database of Land Information to Public
From the Star Advertiser:
An inventory of land owned by the state and who pays to use it has been laid out in a new statewide public online database after more than a decade of efforts to create such a system.
The state Department of Land and Natural Resources finished what it called a “monumental” task to produce the searchable map-based trove of information in 2015 and recently opened it to public use.

To access the Public Land Trust Information System, visit pltis.hawaii.gov.
