Abstract:
Critical Wildlife Areas (CWAs) are established by the FWC under a Florida Administration Code rule to protect important wildlife concentrations from human disturbance during critical periods of their life cycles, such as nesting or migration. For each CWA, the boundaries and periods of time when portions of the area may be posted are defined in the CWA establishment order. Public access is prohibited within CWAs if posted, “Closed to public access.” Dogs, vehicles and vessels are also prohibited from posted areas. The boundary may be larger than the posted area due to the dynamic nature of habitat structure and use. Thus, the area closed each year may change.
Purpose:
Provide matching point and polygon coverage of FWC's critical wildlife areas.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
KMLs were provided for 17 areas and 1 shapefile for one area by the CWA Coordinator. The KMLs were converted to shapefile using the KML to Layer conversion tool in ArcMap 10.2.2. This shapefile was merged with the provided shapefile. Then projected into the current coordinate system using the Project data management tool with the WGS_1984_(ITRF00)_To_NAD_1983_HARN transformation.
Process_Date: 20150219
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Attribute fields were matched between the polygon and point datasets representing FWC's CWAs. Any missing attributes were created and copied over from companion dataset. The missing "Second Chance" CWA in Collier County was added using the centroid of the polygon dataset.
