Description:
Abstract:
This GIS data set represents FDEP's statewide lakes coverage rectified to the DOQQs. Lakes data will likely be updated in the future to include FDEP-developed waterbody IDs for each lake. Also, USGS GNIS naming board will be given the chance to check and approve the determined lake names. If/as this effort is accomplished, GNIS IDs may be added to the attribute data by FDEP. Check with FDEP for the most recent updates.
Purpose:
To visually represent major lakes in the state of Florida. Added Lake Istokpoga in Highlands county on 6/2/06.
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.
This coverage includes every major lake but is not a complete coverage of the lakes in Florida. FWRI staff added south Florida lakes to the DEP coverage.

Available with Caution. All data must be verified by Principal Investigator or Group Database Analyst prior to release. It is strongly recommended that this data is directly acquired from FWC and not indirectly through other sources which may have changed the data in some way. FWC makes no claims as to the data's suitability for other purposes.
Use_Constraints:
Acknowledgement of the FWC-FWRI (Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission-Fish and Wildlife Research Institute) as the data source, and FDEP as the originator, would be appreciated in any products developed from these data, and such acknowledgment as is standard for citation and legal practices for data source is expected by users of this data. Please cite the original metadata when using portions of the record to create a similar record of slightly altered data, such as reprojection. If any data are modified or adjusted, please share the edited information with FWC. Users should be aware that comparison with other data sets for the same area from other time periods may be inaccurate due to inconsistencies resulting from changes in mapping conventions, data collection, and computer processes over time.

Process_Description:
GNIS Lake Points were used as reference points to find the lakes. The GNIS points were then checked against the 1995 Digital Ortho Quadrangles (DOQs). The points were then moved if necessary to represent the center of the lakes, or the point most likely to remain water during drought. Other points were added to represent lakes that did not have GNIS points. The names of the points were then checked against the Digital Raster Graphics and other resources. The USGS Hydrography layer was then clipped to the point coverage, so that there was a layer of just the polygons that intersected the points. The polygon coverage was then cleaned up to match the 1995 DOQs and given the appropriate name from the point coverage. The lakes that did not have names were sent to the respective Water Management District lake biologists for QA/QC. Additional QA/QC included the following: A LINK field was developed to ensure point + polygon correspondence 373 Duplicate Names were investigated 252 names had blank spaces before the Name that had to be removed County Names were compared to DEP Standards Unnecessary fields were removed
