Abstract:
FLORIDA FOREVER BOT PROJECTS (layer name FFBOT): This is a polygon data layer for Florida Forever Board of Trustees (BOT) projects (formerly known as CARL projects). This data layer is site-based and contains boundaries of all Florida Forever BOT projects approved by the State's Acquisition and Restoration Council as of August 15, 2014. These lands have been proposed for acquisition because of outstanding natural resources, opportunity for natural resource-based recreation, or historical and archaeological resources. However, these areas may not be currently managed for their resource value. Portions of these projects may have already been acquired by the State and/or its acquisition partners.
Purpose:
To provide a statewide GIS data layer for all Florida Forever Board of Trustees projects on the current list approved by the Acquisition and Restoration Council (ARC).

Process_Description:
This GIS data layer was generated by the Florida Natural Areas Inventory (FNAI) using ArcGIS v 10.1. Source polygons were developed from the BIOTICS application. Boundary information for Florida Forever BOT projects was provided by the Florida Forever Program, Office of Environmental Services, Division of State Lands, Florida Department of Environmental Protection. Boundary information was originally in either digital format or on paper source maps with varying scales. Digital boundary files were received from various sources and integrated into FFBOT by FNAI staff. In the case of paper source maps, FNAI staff digitized these boundaries (on screen or with digitizer) using 1:24000 7.5' USGS quadrangles as base maps. The following digitizers were used by the FNAI GIS: CalComp DBII, accuracy of +/- .01 inch CalComp DBIII, accuracy of +/- .005 inch CalComp 9500 Series, accuracy of +/- .005 inch When digital boundaries from one source overlapped with digital boundaries from another source, the boundaries were adjusted by FNAI staff to eliminate the overlapping areas. Adjustments were made based on the best known information about the source of the boundaries. All overlaps greater than 0.002 meters were removed using this process.

Attribute_Label: SITE_ID
Attribute_Definition:
Unique numeric identifier for each site, designed by NatureServe for use with the BIOTICS Tracker data management system.
