Description:
Abstract:
This GIS data set represents the Wildlife Management Areas administered by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), and other associated public use areas. These data are intended as a general reference map only. More information on activities permitted in individual areas can be found from the links on FWC's Web site: <http://www.myfwc.com/RECREATION/WMASites_index.htm>
Purpose:
This GIS data set was created to represent a comprehensive statewide data set of Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) Wildlife Management Areas.
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.

Process_Description:
Chassahowitka WMA, Andrews WMA, Bullfrog Creek Mitigation Park WEA, Crooked Lake WEA, Lake Wales Ridge WEA and Platt Mitigation Park WEA were created by using DOR parcel data, with exceptions below. Contact the individual county property appraisers for questions on accuracy of parcel data. -Bulllfrog Creek WMA was created using parcel data, but in the Legal Description it cites the STR line, but the STR line did not exactly match with parcel data, so parcel data was used as default.

Process_Description:
Wildlife Management Area boundaries were produced by "heads-up" digitizing from 1999 USGS infrared imagery (DOQQ). In specified cases, Florida Natural Areas Inventory (FNAI) boundaries were used and modified based on the DOQQs. All boundaries are based on information from PDF maps of the Wildlife Management Areas from the FWC Web site: <http://myfwc.com/hunting/wma-brochures>.

Box-R WMA, Judges Cave WEA, Hickey Creek WEA, Chinsegut WEA, Perry Oldenburg WEA, Big Bend WMA, Tenoroc FMA and Apalachee WMA were created by using DOR parcel data, with exceptions below. Contact the individual county property appraisers for questions on accuracy of parcel data. -Judges Cave was created using survey data completed in 2005 by Bannerman Surveyors. -Big Bend was created using ‘heads up’ digitizing with imagery when needed (when not using parcel data) by the Lead Biologist of the WMA. -Box-R was created using survey information done by Allen Nobles and Associates in November 2003. -Apalachee WMA was partly created with ‘heads up’ digitizing using aerial photos and using land definitions contained in lease agreement with the US Army Corps of Engineers.
