    Land use map, step by step?

    Hi all, I will soon be revising and updating a Land Use Map, including existing conditions and future land use recommendations.This will be my first experience with it; all my previous experience has been with development review.

    I have an undergraduate degree in Planning, but am wondering if anyone knows of good "step by step" guides to help me brainstorm? Preferably online resources, as my budget is tight.

    We used the property appraiser's records integrated into our GIS to create the existing land use map. Your future land use map, that's a whole different story based on community input, visioning, public meetings, etc.

    Yes, this is the standard. Easily done.

    That is: the need for depicting future land use recommendations is met on a different map. If you have done the work and done the meetings, the easiest way to render this is either to 'save as' the current LU map and then select the parcels that have changed and make a new layer, or to redraw from scratch, selecting all the parcels for each FLUM category. .
