During the Fall 2003 semester students in the Departments of Landscape Architecture and Community & Regional Planning at Iowa State University studied the Ioway Trail Project in detail and prepared a comprehensive 180-page Master Plan for the project.

A PDF copy of the plan is available on CD-ROM but it is simply too large for download or online viewing. The CD-ROMs and printed copies of the plan are controlled by the IVRC&D office and may be available for check-out.

The Master Plan also includes 17 display posters that summarize various aspects of the project and the research that was conducted. PDF images of the posters are included on the CD-ROM and, while they also too large to provide online, you will find smaller JPEG images of the posters, suitable for online viewing, in the table of links below. Simply click on any link to open the corresponding image in your browser. Note that these images are still rather large so each may take a few moments or a few minutes to load depending on your connection speed. Once loaded you should be able to pan and zoom to examine the image or you are welcome to save a copy of the image to your computer for later viewing.
