Land is the medium for all life on earth. Once people considered land as an unlimited resource. Today we can no longer subscribe to that view. We face the shortage of various resources including energy and raw materials while experiencing a decay of our environment. Iowa, the leading agricultural producer in the United States, uses 92.2% of its land for agricultural production. Transportation plays a vital role in movement of agribusiness commodities and service as well as the conveyance of Iowa's people. Transportation occupies the next largest amount of land. Transportation of one form or another uses 3.5% of Iowa's land. The importance of understanding land use is slowly alerting many Iowa cities and towns to organize a planning department. It is also causing public officials to be more farsighted with policies concerning zoning and land development.
