This dataset was maintained at the GeoPlan Center until the fall 
of 1999, it was then transferred to the Florida Natural Areas 
Inventory (FNAI).
Aquatic Preserves Database
The Florida Aquatic Preserves GIS Database developed by the Department of Environmental Protection's Florida Marine Research Institute (DEP-FMRI) is not being distributed with Version 1 of the Conservation Lands Database at the request of DEP-FMRI. Those persons interested in obtaining this database should contact Leslie Ward at FMRI (813-896-8626).

Summary Statistics Issues
Some conservation lands straddle water management district boundaries. To facilitate initial database development, the entire polygon representing a particular park, etc. was included in only one of the water management district coverages. Hence, caution should be exercised in generating statistics from a single coverage for areas within a water management district. Similarly, some polygons in the database include both terrestrial and marine areas. Summary statistics for conservation lands within the St. John's River Water Management District and the South Florida Water Management district which were published with the final report of the Fla. Greenways Commission (December 1994) were calculated by subtracting the area of overlap with marine waters (by unioning the coverages with 1:100K DLG hydrography) from the areas calculated for the polygons in the conservation lands coverages. The final report summary statistics for area in aquatic preserves was calculated from the DEP-FMRI aquatic preserves database, not the aquatic preserve polygons found in this version.

**Accuracy and Appropriate Uses
This database was compiled to support the planning of a statewide greenways system by the Florida Greenways Commission and may not be suitable for other purposes. This is not a highly accurate database and it is inappropriate to utilize this coverage in Site Planning or other large scale modeling or analysis projects.

The original map scales and sources for much of the boundary data collected by others is unknown, hence the spatial accuracy of any given boundary is not known. 1:250,000 scale maps depicting the database have been reviewed by representatives of each of the water management districts, the Department of Environmental Protection, and several other state and federal agencies cooperating with the Florida Greenways Commission. The unofficial consensus is that the database offers a representation of the boundaries of existing and proposed conservation lands in Florida which is appropriate for regional and statewide planning.


-Set Precision to DOUBLE
-Set Tolerances to FGDL Standards
-Added DESCRIPT item based on TYPE



The conservation lands database was initially compiled and standardized from the existing digital GIS databases maintained by each Florida Water Management District. The compiled database was subsequently enhanced at the Geoplan Center by the
addition/standardization of attribute data (such as name, type, status, etc.). The Geoplan Center also corrected all boundary and location inaccuracies identified by reviewers. In addition, every effort was made to incorporate boundary changes precipitated by acquisitions and proposals which occurred as late as December 1998.

Digital/hard copy boundary and hard copy attribute data were contributed by the St. Johns River Water Management District, South Florida Water Management District, Southwest Florida Water Management District, Suwannee River Water Management District, Northwest Florida Water Management District, Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Florida Natural Areas Inventory, Florida Game and Freshwater Fish Commission, Florida Department of Transportation, Florida Division of Forestry, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Forest Service, several local government agencies, and 1000 Friends of Florida.

Created by the University of Florida Geoplan Center and maintained through fall 1999. Maintenance by Florida Natural Areas Inventory began fall 1999.
