Abstract:
This GIS layer consists of points representing facilities of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, including the Main Headquarters, Regional Offices, Division of Wildlife, Freshwater Fisheries, and Fish and Wildlife Research Institute.
Purpose:
This data set provides a visual representation of FWC office locations as of November 2014.
Supplemental_Information:
Prior to July 1, 2004, the Fish and Wildlife Research Institute (FWRI) was known as the Florida Marine Research Institute (FMRI). The institute name has not been changed in historical data sets or references to work completed by the Florida Marine Research Institute. The institute name has been changed in references to ongoing research, new research, and contact information.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Facilities attributes and positions were updated to match the 'offical' FWC portal data where positions are reported by staff at the office locations. Updates based on FWC portal data will occur quarterly.
Process_Date: 20090309
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
(1) Data were exported from SharePoint list as Excel Document. (2) Excel Document was imported as a new Project in Google-Refine. In Google-Refine, QC tests were performed on the data based upon valid attributes: (a) valid latitude and longitude values, - Box-R WMA Field Office - Everglades Youth Conservation Camp - Jacksonville Field Office - Law Enforcement - South Florida Natural Resources Center (b) consistent county spelling and capitalization - Converted all "DADE" entries to "MIAMI-DADE" - Capitalized all attribute values (c) removal of duplicate facilities - Deleted duplicate "Ft. Lauderdale Research & Eductation Center" record (d) conformity in the data entry in the "Parking_Info" and "Hours_of_Operation" fields. The data were exported out as corrected Excel document. (3) Corrected Excel document was imported into MS Access database to ensure correct attribute field type conversions. (4) Table from MS Access DB was imported into a ArcGIS file geodatabase (.gdb) and then converted into spatial data based upon XY data (Longitude and Latitude data) in WGS84 and reprojected into NAD 1983 HARN Florida GDL Albers (Meters) projection. (5) The resulting feature class was imported into an ArcMap session where additional QC tests were performed on the data based upon spatial location: (a) County attribute was modified based upon spatial location - TM Goodwin Waterfowl Management Office - Tequesta Field Lab (b) FWC Region attribute was modified based upon spatial location - Hilochee Field Office - Half Moon WLD Field Office (c) Corrected Lat/Longs based upon point showing up in wrong county - Natural Resources Conservation Service - DeFuniak Springs (d) Combined facilities with different names, but same mailing address and lat/long values. - "Eustis Fisheries Research Lab" and "North Alligator Field Office" combined to be "Eustis Field Office" - "DLE - Douglass Building" and "IPM - Tallahassee" combined to be "Douglass Building" - "Marathon DLE Office" and "South Florida Region Lab" combined to be "South Florida Regional Lab" (6) In ArcMap a new "FACTYPE" field was created and populated based upon their categorization of being one of the following: "Headquarters", "Regional Office", or "General Office" (7) Metadata were imported from previous version of the data and updated. (8) feature class was imported into SDE
