Wisconsin land sales data is collected by the Wisconsin Department of Revenue. From this data source we have computed weighed average sales prices for bare land and improved properties throughout the state. Ag land prices have increased dramatically in recent years and appear to be headed higher again in 2007.
This paper will discuss the methodology used to compute the average prices and some of the limitations of the data source. Finally it will discuss some of the challenges making visual representations of the data with ArcINFO.
