Description:
Abstract:
This dataset contains the midpoint of roadway facilities that cross under or over a wildlife passage. This data is taken from the February 2011 version of the Florida Department of Transportation Roads Characteristics inventory (RCI) dataset.
Purpose:
The FDOT GIS Facility Crossing feature class provides spatial information on the name of the facility (river, railroad, stream, etc.) which crosses over or under a roadway that is maintained in FDOT's RCI (Roadway Characteristic Inventory).

Process_Description:
The data set was taken from the Florida Department of Transportation Statistics Office from the following webpage: <http://www.dot.state.fl.us/planning/statistics/gis> The data set was originally downloaded in FEBRUARY 2011 as the RCI basemap. Specific instructions, created by URS Corporation and the GeoPlan Center, were carried out. The data set is then to be updated on a regular basis. The data was originally in UTM Zone 17, Nad83, units meters. The data was projected to Albers HPGN.
-Download the most recent RCI geodatabase -Export FACCROSS to shapefile -Select wildlife crossing features and export to new shapefile the following selection string was used to find wildlife crossings: ("NAME" LIKE '%WILDLIFE%')
-Convert lines to points. -Project the shape file to the standard FGDL projection. -Add DESCRIPT field based on field NAME

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.

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>
