Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Each attribute label was confirmed to be a member of the set of valid values, and each land area has one and only one label. The degree of completeness associated with available digital datasets vary amongst public agencies. KY-GAP relied almost exclusively on data sets contributed from state and federal agencies. Many city, county, or regional (area development districts) governments within Kentucky do not yet have either GIS, or geo-referenced CAD files. The few entities with GIS have little time and financial means to dedicate efforts to collect or convert property ownership boundaries to digital GIS data. Simple documentation of processing procedures, and standards manuals are rare. The creation of formal metadata documenting digital data (GIS or CAD files) is even a rarer commodity to come by. All efforts were made to acquire readily available digital GIS data; therefore, existing non-geo-referenced CAD data was not pursued, nor was hardcopy maps for table digitizing. This information should be noted when drawing any conclusions that rely on, or, in part from this Land Stewardship data. Private lands may contain unique and characteristics valuable to biodiversity. The Commonwealth of Kentucky is composed of approximately 95% private lands. Digital data, whether GIS or CAD files was not sought because of the many constrains (limited time, and available personnel) associated with gathering it. Gathered digital data for land stewardship GIS layer Projected GIS data to UTMs Zone 16 NAD27 Edited Composite shapefile for overlapping polygon and attribute assignment.
