Abstract: This dataset was derived from the Florida DEP's NWFWMD 2009-2010 Land Use dataset. Unlike the source dataset, this dataset only covers Leon County plus a 500 foot buffer. This dataset was also re-projected from FEDP_Albers_HARN to NAD_1983_HARN_StatePlane_Florida_North_FIPS_0903_Feet. The source dataset was created by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection's Bureau of Watershed Restoration and is an inventory of Land use - Land Cover classified in the State of Florida's Northwest Florida Water Management District and based on 2009 and/or 2010 Florida Ortho Quarter Quad Aerial Imagery True color photography. Classifications are provided for level 1, 2, 3 and a few level 4 (indicated in Land use and Secondary Code fields) land uses. This is not the land use layer from the Tallahassee-Leon County Planning Department. It is not based on attribute data linked to parcels, but rather polygon data compiled from 1-ft resolution orthoimagery using photointerpretation techniques to delineate the actual footprint of particular landcover classes. The classification is based on the Florida Land Use, Cover and Forms Classification System published by the Florida Department of Transportation. More information can be found at: http://www.dot.state.fl.us/surveyingandmapping/Manuals/fluccmanual.pdf Entity and attribute overview: The adopted classification scheme has resulted from the following process: 1. Potential classification types originally taken from Florida Department of Transportations "Florida Land use, cover and forms classification system" 2. Conformity with SJRWMD's classification system was sought whenever possible out of an interest in creating a data layer that would result in a product that was seamless in terms of its geometry and attribution with this contingent area. 3. Bureau of Watershed Restoration, Watershed Assessment Section (WAS) Managers reviewed a preliminary list for the purpose of identifying classification types that contributed to sources of pollution and those that allowed them to identify natural conditions that may have an effect on water quality impairment. This led to the removal of some classification types from the preliminary list to form a WAS wants list. 4. Photo interpreters reviewed the available photography for the purpose of determining which of the WAS wants list could and could not be classified. For example, the resolution of the imagery allowed a photointerpreter to confidently assign the level 3 class code of 2140: Row Crops to a polygon but not of any of the Level 4 codes (see next item). 5. The FLUCC's system is hierarchical; it includes four levels that build in terms of specificity: A Level 1 classification is the most general it is a four digit code in which the first integer in the code is assigned one of eight numbers; 1000 = Urban and Built up class, 2000 = Agricultural, 3000 = Rangeland, 4000 = Upland Forests, 5000 = Water, 6000 = Wetlands, 7000 = Barren Land and 8000 = Transportation, Communications, Utilities. The second integer (and each successive integer) provides a subclassification of a higher specificity. For example 2100 (Level II) Class is Crop and pasture land a subtype of the 2000 Agricultural class, 2150 (Level III) : Field Crops is a specific subtype of the 2100 Crop and pasture land subtype. Further, 2153 (Level iV) is a specific subtype of the 2150 class. Very few level 4 classifications have been chosen. This is so because discernment of the keys to classification for these classes typically require imagery of a higher resolution than our source imagery. The Level 4 designation is indicated in either the Land Use Code or Secondary Code Fields of the attribute table. 6. A few classification types were added to accommodate needs that were specific to the Water Management districts.

FGDC and ESRI Metadata:

Metadata elements shown with blue text are defined in the Federal Geographic Data Committee's (FGDC) Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM). Elements shown with a green asterisk (*) will be automatically updated by ArcCatalog. ArcCatalog adds hints indicating which FGDC elements are mandatory; these are shown with gray text.

Purpose:
Analyses of Land Use - Land Cover GIS information provide environmental scientists an understanding of the relationships between human activities, land surface physiography and water resources. Florida's landscape is quickly changing and as a result, at the time prior to this layer's creation, existing land use - land cover GIS layers for the Northwest Florida Panhandle area were out-of-date. A more current layer was needed to improve the accuracy of these analyses. This dataset covers everything within the Leon County boundary plus a 500 foot buffer.
