Mapping & Interactive Data

Maps provide a key method of visually communicating our plans and regional trends to policy makers, the public, and our local communities. Tri-County maintains a map gallery of both static and interactive maps, applications, story maps, and mapping and forecasting tools to help tell the story of our region and its transportation options, accessibility to essential services, and other factors that impact our quality of life.

Our databases, tools, and dashboards provide up-to-date information on demographics and socioeconomic trends, land use, economic key indicators, environmental considerations, and transportation-related data. 

Services & Technical Assistance

Middle Grand River Water Trail Navigation Tool

The Middle Grand River Water Trail is an officially designated MDNR water trail beginning in Eaton Rapids, MI and ending in Lyons, MI. The following map has been created to help users find access points and amenities, locate river hazards, and share information about Middle Grand communities. View the interactive Google Map here. No map can alert you to every hazard or anticipate the limitations of the trail user. Therefore, the descriptions of the trail on this website are not representations that a particular excursion or place will be safe for your party. When you follow the trail, you assume responsibility for your own safety. Pay attention to traffic, water, road, and trail conditions, weather, terrain, the capabilities of your party, and other factors. Keeping informed on the current conditions and exercising common sense are the keys to a safe, enjoyable outing. Safe paddling requires preparation, proper equipment, and experience. Canoeing and kayaking can be dangerous.
