Data Collection Quizzes & Trivia

Welcome back to Hanley Wood Market Intelligence! The following survey is intended for land status researchers that have participated in our data collection effort at least once before, and therefore may be able to contribute their experiences regarding the effectiveness of the map books provided by Hanley Wood. If you did not receive a Map Book for our 2nd quarter Land Status Data Collection, please exit out of this survey, as this is optional material which will aid us to better serve our land status researchers in future data collections. Thank you very much for your time; your thoughts and suggestions will be read, and we will seriously consider them as we continue to improve your experience while working with us during the data collection process. &n
