I have had great experience using the Garrett County Planning Tool. Super for engaging partners and introducing the power of data to a wide variety of planning partners.

It is incredible how a so small plugin has so many features! And you can adapt it for any planning purpose, if you change the strings. Thank you for this excellent planning tool.
