Existing Land Use

Data format: Shapefile

Coordinate system: Lambert Conformal Conic

Theme keywords: Land Use, planningCadastre

Abstract: The existing land use is based on research of the property appraisers file, permits, previous existing land use records and other sources. This is done each year and an effort is made to reflect existing land use as of October 31st of that year. Beginning in 2006, that date is reflected in the last field of the file. (effective-dt) Errors or descrepancies should be reported to the Planning Department.

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.

Abstract:
The existing land use  is based on research of the property appraisers file, permits, previous existing land use records and other sources.  This is done each year and an effort is made to reflect existing land use as of October 31st of that year.  Beginning in 2006, that date is reflected in the last field of the file. (effective-dt)   Errors or descrepancies should be reported to the Planning Department.

Purpose:
To provide a general guide to the distribution of land uses in Leon County, in the form of a snapshot of October of each year.

Process description:
This dataset consists of attributes for existing land use, paired with a snapshot of the Parcel map.  
Existing land use is determined by looking at numerous 
sources including, the appraisers NAL file, permit information, visual inspection and others.  
Exlu2003 was used as a starting point.
