This dataset contains the US Census Bureau 2010 Census Places for the State of Florida with the total population from Summary File 1. This data is specifically designed for use within the Florida Department of Transportation's Efficient Transportation Decision Making Process (ETDM) . TIGER/Line Files include both incorporated places (legal entities) and census designated places or CDPs (statistical entities). An incorporated place is established to provide governmental functions for a concentration of people as opposed to a minor civil division (MCD), which generally is created to provide services or administer an area without regard, necessarily, to population. Places always nest within a State, but may extend across county and county subdivision boundaries. An incorporated place usually is a city, town, village, or borough, but can have other legal descriptions. CDPs are delineated for the decennial census as the statistical counterparts of incorporated places. CDPs are delineated to provide data for settled concentrations of population that are identifiable by name, but are not legally incorporated under the laws of the State in which they are located. The boundaries for CDPs often are defined in partnership with State, local, and/or tribal officials and usually coincide with visible features or the boundary of an adjacent incorporated place or another legal entity. CDP boundaries often change from one decennial census to the next with changes in the settlement pattern and development; a CDP with the same name as in an earlier census does not necessarily have the same boundary. The only population/housing size requirement for CDPs for the 2010 Census is that they must contain some housing and population. The boundaries of all 2010 Census incorporated places are as of January 1, 2010 as reported through the Census Bureau's Boundary and Annexation Survey (BAS). The boundaries of all 2010 Census CDPs were delineated as part of the Census Bureau's Participant Statistical Areas Program (PSAP).

SHAPE.AREA Area in meters

SHAPE.LEN Perimeter in meters

The Census Bureau performed automated tests to 
ensure logical consistency and limits of shapefiles.  
Segments making up the outer and inner boundaries of 
a polygon tie end-to-end to completely enclose the area.  
All polygons are tested for closure.
The Census Bureau uses its internally developed 
geographic update system to enhance and modify 
spatial and attribute data in the Census MAF/TIGER 
database.  Standard geographic codes, such as FIPS 
codes for states, counties, municipalities, county 
subdivisions, places, American Indian/Alaska Native/Native 
Hawaiian areas, and congressional districts are used 
when encoding spatial entities.  The Census Bureau 
performed spatial data tests for logical consistency 
of the codes during the compilation of the original 
Census MAF/TIGER database files.  Most of the codes 
for geographic entities except states, counties, urban 
areas, Core Based Statistical Areas (CBSAs), American 
Indian Areas (AIAs), and congressional districts were 
provided to the Census Bureau by the USGS, the agency 
responsible for maintaining FIPS 55.  Feature attribute 
information has been examined but has not been fully tested 
for consistency.
For the TIGER/Line Shapefiles, the Point and Vector 
Object Count for the G-polygon SDTS Point and Vector Object 
Type reflects the number of records in the shapefile 
attribute table.  For multi-polygon features, only one 
attribute record exists for each multi-polygon rather 
than one attribute record per individual G-polygon component 
of the multi-polygon feature.  TIGER/Line Shapefile multi-polygons 
are an exception to the G-polygon object type classification.  
Therefore, when multi-polygons exist in a shapefile, the object 
count will be less than the actual number of G-polygons.
Data completeness of the TIGER/Line Shapefiles reflects 
the contents of the Census MAF/TIGER database at the 
time the TIGER/Line Shapefiles were created.
GeoPlan relied on the integrity of the attribute information within
the original data.

In order for others to use the information in the 
Census MAF/TIGER database in a geographic information 
system (GIS) or for other geographic applications, the 
Census Bureau releases to the public extracts of the 
database in the form of TIGER/Line Shapefiles.

The boundary information in the TIGER/Line Shapefiles 
are for statistical data collection and tabulation 
purposes only; their depiction and designation for 
statistical purposes does not constitute a determination 
of jurisdictional authority or rights of ownership or 
entitlement and they are not legal land descriptions.
Coordinates in the TIGER/Line shapefiles have six implied 
decimal places, but the positional accuracy of these 
coordinates is not as great as the six decimal places suggest.

The Florida Geographic Data Library is a collection of Geospatial Data

the Florida Department of Transportation. GIS data available in FGDL is
collected from various state, federal, and other agencies (data sources)
who are data stewards, producers, or publishers. The data available in
FGDL may not be the most current version of the data offered by the
data source. University of Florida GeoPlan Center makes no guarantees
about the currentness of the data and suggests that data users check
with the data source to see if more recent versions of the data exist.

A note about data scale: 

Scale is an important factor in data usage.  Certain scale datasets
are not suitable for some project, analysis, or modeling purposes.
Please be sure you are using the best available data. 

1:24000 scale datasets are recommended for projects that are at the
county level.
1:24000 data should NOT be used for high accuracy base mapping such
as property parcel boundaries.
1:100000 scale datasets are recommended for projects that are at the
multi-county or regional level.
1:125000 scale datasets are recommended for projects that are at the
regional or state level or larger.

Vector datasets with no defined scale or accuracy should be
considered suspect. Make sure you are familiar with your data
before using it for projects or analysis. Every effort has been
made to supply the user with data documentation. For additional
information, see the References section and the Data Source Contact
section of this documentation. For more information regarding
scale and accuracy, see our webpage at:


TIGER/Line Shapefiles are extracted from the 
Census MAF/TIGER database by nation, state, 
county, and entity.  Census MAF/TIGER data for 
all of the aforementioned geographic entities are 
then distributed among the shapefiles each containing 
attributes for line, polygon, or landmark geographic data.
Process Date: 2010

The 2010 TIGER line files were downloaded from the following site: http://www.census.gov/geo/www/tiger/tgrshp2010/tgrshp2010.html When received the data was in Geographic Lat/Long projection. The data was projected to Albers HPGN. Summary File 1 was downloaded from the US Census Bureau from http://www2.census.gov/census_2010/04-Summary_File_1/Florida/fl2010.sf1.zip and the database was compiled using the process steps in http://www2.census.gov/census_2010/04-Summary_File_1/0HowToUseMSAccessWithSummaryFile1.pd The data was then joined to the 2010 Tiger/MAF shapefile based on the GEOID10 field. The selected field (see below) was renamed to be similar to place2000 field and duplicate fields were deleted. The following fields were extracted from the tables and renamed: P0010001 - TOTAL POPULATION The following QaQc procedures were performed: -exported original shapefile to file GeoDatabase -FGDLAQDATE added based on date GeoPlan acquired data from source -Changed name from tl_2010_12_place10.shp to CENPLACE2010_AUG11 Process Date: 20110912
