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 October 26, 2016. 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 10.2. 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.

Process_Description:
GeoPlan downloaded this dataset from the Florida Natural Areas Inventory website (<http://www.fnai.org/gisdata.cfm>) on January 24, 2017. The data downloaded was in shapefile format and was in the following projection: Albers HPGN.
- Redefined the file to FGDL Albers NAD83 HARN projection. - Deleted PERIMETER and AREA fields. - A DESCRIPT field was added based on PROJECT_NA. - A FGDLAQDATE field was added based on date of download. - Uppercased all records. - Restructured table - Changed original layer name from ffbot_201610.shp to fl_forever_oct16

Resource_Description: DOWNLOADABLE DATA
Distribution_Liability:
The Florida Geographic Data Library is a collection of Geospatial Data compiled by the University of Florida GeoPlan Center with support from the Florida Department of Transportation. GIS data available in FGDL is collected from various state, federal, and other agencies (data sources) who are data stewards, producers, or publishers. The data available in FGDL may not be the most current version of the data offered by the data source. University of Florida GeoPlan Center makes no guarantees about the currentness of the data and suggests that data users check with the data source to see if more recent versions of the data exist.
Furthermore, the GIS data available in the FGDL are provided 'as is'. The University of Florida GeoPlan Center makes no warranties, guaranties or representations as to the truth, accuracy or completeness of the data provided by the data sources. The University of Florida GeoPlan Center makes no representations or warranties about the quality or suitability of the materials, either expressly or implied, including but not limited to any implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement. The University of Florida GeoPlan Center shall not be liable for any damages suffered as a result of using, modifying, contributing or distributing the materials.
A note about data scale:
Scale is an important factor in data usage. Certain scale datasets are not suitable for some project, analysis, or modeling purposes. Please be sure you are using the best available data.
1:24000 scale datasets are recommended for projects that are at the county level. 1:24000 data should NOT be used for high accuracy base mapping such as property parcel boundaries. 1:100000 scale datasets are recommended for projects that are at the multi-county or regional level. 1:125000 scale datasets are recommended for projects that are at the regional or state level or larger.
Vector datasets with no defined scale or accuracy should be considered suspect. Make sure you are familiar with your data before using it for projects or analysis. Every effort has been made to supply the user with data documentation. For additional information, see the References section and the Data Source Contact section of this documentation. For more information regarding scale and accuracy, see our webpage at: <http://geoplan.ufl.edu/education.html>
