Title: Counties 1:24,000 Scale Polygon Florida
Geospatial_Data_Presentation_Form: vector digital data
Description:
Abstract:
This GIS data set contains Florida county boundaries found on the most recent 7.5-minute USGS (1:24000 scale) quadrangles available in 1997. The county borders extend to the state water line. The linework along the state borders with Alabama and Georgia exactly matches FWRI's 1:40K shoreline.
Purpose:
Use county boundaries for graphical purposes as well as some analyses.
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. There is a problem with the county line between Manatee and Hillsborough. Linework in the water is arbitrary and may not reflect actual submerged boundaries.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
County boundaries were heads-up digitized from scanned and georeferenced USGS 7.5 minute quadrangle maps.
Process_Date: 199708
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The county boundaries were extended into the water to intersect the state water line.
Process_Date: 2002
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
FWRI staff INTERSECTed the state waters arcs with a shoreline to add the ATTRIBUTE field to indicate whether a line passed over land or water.
Process_Date: 200504
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
FWRI staff recreated the outer boundary of this layer to reflect more accurate information. The water boundaries were extended to the Submerged Lands Act shapefile form NOAA and the boundary (land and water) between Florida and neighboring states was digitized from the 1:24,000 scale Digital Raster Graphic files.
Process_Date: 200710
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The county line between Broward and Palm Beach Counties was edited to reflect a change in the boundary effective 9/18/2009.
Process_Date: 201003
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The boundary between Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties was edited for accuracy. The new boundary is based off of data received from Escambia County GIS Department.
