Description:
Abstract:
This is a statewide GIS data set containing the boundaries of the five water management districts, reflecting the boundary change effective July 1, 2003. FWRI obtained these data from the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD.) Although only the region polygon shapefile is served on the ArcIMS site, an arc version is also available. The arcs have been coded so that they may be drawn with or without the coastline. This data set is intended for cartographic purposes only.
Purpose:
This data set was created for resource management and cartographic purposes.
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.

Access_Constraints:
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 SWFWMD 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:
The UNIX compressed file was downloaded from the DEP ftp site. The file was uncompressed using the UNIX uncompress command. The export file was imported using the ArcInfo IMPORT command. The fuzzy tolerance was set to .001 and polygon topology was created using the BUILD command. The coverage was projected from ALBERS to UTM using the PROJECT command with the projection parameters listed below. The BUILD command was then used to recreate polygon and create arc topology. The ArcInfo commands ADDITEM and DROPITEM were used to modify the polygon attribute table (PAT) and arc attribute table (AAT). The following items were added to the PAT: WMDNAME, DATESTAMP. The following item was dropped from the PAT: NAME. The following items were added to the AAT: COASTBND, DATESTAMP. The REGIONDISSOLVE command was used to create a region subclass called WMD.
The following projection file was used:

Process_Description:
In May of 2003, the area of Polk county controlled by St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD) was given to the Southwest Florida Water Management District. The legal descriptions were used to extract the proper section lines from the Public Land Survey Sections layer (PLSS). At that time, the Suwannee River Water Management District (SRWMD) also noted an error in their border with the Northwest Florida Water Management District (NWFWMD). SRWMD staff made the correction based on the legal descriptions.
