Abstract:
This GIS data layer consists of lands managed for conservation
and open space based on multiple source layers.
This is a composite inventory that integrates digital depictions of
lands from multiple sources and resolves boundary discrepancies among
sources.  Partners in the creation of this data layer included the
Department of Environment and Natural Resources (the Division of Parks
and Recreation, the Wildlife Resources Commission, the Division of
Coastal Management, and the Conservation Tax Credit program), the
State Property Office, the Land Trust for North Carolina and its
associated land trusts, the Department of Agriculture and Consumer
Services, the Clean Water Management Trust Fund, the Conservation
Fund, the Nature Conservancy, the US Forest Service, the US Fish and
Wildlife Service, the NC GAP Analysis program, and the Triangle J
Council of Governments and its associated local governments.
The source layers are:

Definitions:
"Lands Managed for Conservation and Open Space" are a combination of
lands that are permanently protected open space and farmland and other
lands that are managed as "open space" as defined by North Carolina
General Statue 160A-407 (see below).  For example, a wildlife
conservation area that is owned by a public or non-profit land managing
organization would count as permanently protected open space.
Farmland that is preserved under the state's Farmland Preservation Trust
Fund would count as permanently protected land.  Permanently protected
lands purchased or brought under an easement beginning in January 1999
count toward the state's goal of protecting one million acres of open
space by 2009-the Million Acre Initiative. In addition, the Lands Managed
for Conservation and Open Space database includes state-owned property
that is used for recreational open space including areas reserved for
boating access.

160A-407. Definitions.
(a) For the purpose of this Part an "open space" or "open area" is any
space or area (i) characterized by great natural scenic beauty or (ii)
whose existing openness, natural condition, or present state of use, if
retained, would enhance the present or potential value of abutting or
surrounding urban development, or would maintain or enhance the
conservation of natural or scenic resources.
(b) For the purposes of this Part "open space" or "open area" and the
"public use and enjoyment" of interests or rights in real property shall
also include open space land and open space uses. The term "open space
land" means any  undeveloped or predominantly undeveloped land in an urban
area that has value for one or more of the following purposes: (i) park
and recreational purposes, (ii) conservation of land and other natural
resources, or (iii) historic or scenic purposes. The term "open space
uses" means any use of open space land for (i) park and
recreational purposes, (ii) conservation of land and other natural
resources, or (iii) historic or scenic purposes. (1963, c. 1129, s.
7; 1969, c. 35, s. 1; 1971, c. 698, s. 1.)

Lands Managed for Conservation and Open Space encompass many land
categories and purposes: including but not limited to:
>Parks and Greenways
>Natural Hazard Mitigation ("buy-out" properties)
>Watershed Protection
>Farmland Preservation
>Cultural and Historic Lands
>State Park
>State Recreation Area
>State Natural Area
>State Nature Preserve
>State Lake
>State Historic Site
>State Gamelands
>State Coastal Reserve
>>Submerged Lands
>>Public Beach & Coastal Water Access
>NC Wetlands Restoration Program
>Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program
>National Wildlife Refuge
>National Forest, National Park
>NRCS Wetlands Reserve
>Other Nature Preserves
>
>Exclusions:
Not all land that has recreational, historic, scenic and natural resource
value is defined as "open space and preserved farmland" for this project.
The Lands Managed for Conservation and Open Space database does NOT
include privately owned green spaces, homeowner association green spaces,
public leases of private land, school yards, university and college campus
land, athletic fields, golf courses, utility-owned land, privately owned
forests, prison property, university campuses, research farms or  military
bases.  Private land that is leased or managed by the state for
gameland reserves is not included in the database and does not count
toward the Million Acre goal.  These types of property all have value as
areas that are free of buildings and parking  lots, but they lack the
permanency and purposes required for this project's working definitions.
Purpose:
These data were created for the Farmland Preservation Trust Fund
and the Million Acre Initiative to establish an inventory of
protected lands, open space, and preserved farmland.  The goal was
to create a database and GIS layer for consistency and completeness.
The intended users of these data are state and federal agencies, local
governments, land trusts, and other private entities that have
an interest in land conservation, open space and farmland
preservation.  Planners, land managers, and trust funds, in particular,
are in need of comprehensive data for decision-making.

Acknowledgement of products derived from this data set should cite
the following: The boundaries of polygons in this data layer may not
be consistent with the source data layers, particularly where multiple
sources depicted the same property from different primary or secondary
sources.  Efforts have been made and will continue to be made to
improve the boundaries in areas where multiple sources differ.  Sources
of the Lands for Conservation and Open Space data include data layers
in the North Carolina Corporate Geographic Database. Earlier versions
of source data sets may exist.  The user must be sure to use the
appropriate data set for the time period of interest. While efforts
have been made to ensure that these data are accurate and reliable within
the state of the art, CGIA cannot assume liability for any damages or
misrepresentation caused by any inaccuracies in the data or as a result
of changes to the data caused by system transfers.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
This composite data layer relies on the attribute accuracy of the source
files. Attributes were checked for spelling consistency (e.g., managing
agency name). Five locational attributes (quad name, county, river basin,
DENR region, COG region) were computed by the GIS based on the centroid of
each polygon (one-to-one relationship).  Acres were computed by the GIS
and converted to hectares.
All polygons have a unique "land_id" computed by the GIS from the metric
state plane coordinates (x,y) of the center point (centroid) of the
polygon.  Land_id is 12-character string made up of alternating digits
from each of six non-decimal x and y characters (with leading zero in y
string if necessary to fill six places).
Logical_Consistency_Report:
Using ESRI's ARC/INFO GIS software, the data set was built for arc and
polygon  topology using the "build" command. The data set was then cleaned
with a fuzzy tolerance of (1 meter.) Topology has not been edited since the
last build or clean.
Completeness_Report:
Polygons identified as "in-holdings"-privately held property that is not
protected  for conservation but is surrounded by protected land-are not
included in the final data layer, nor are water areas within protected
areas.  Some public lands are not included as open space: military bases and
facilities, state university campuses, research farms, and highway
corridors.

Nearly all of the state-owned lands managed for conservation and open space
are included in this dataset.  A few properties may have been missed because
of coding anomalies in the state-owned complexes file (i.e., this project
selected properties based on complex use code and would have missed
properties that were not coded as one of the selected code values).  For the
most part, the state properties are accurate, up-to-date, and complete.
Federal lands are mostly complete in this dataset, including recently mapped
properties that have permanent wildlife refuge easements.  Recent boundary
changes may not have been included in this dataset.  Note that, like state
properties, a selected set of federal properties was consistent with the
definition of lands managed for conservation and open space.

The Local government lands managed for conservation and open space are most
complete in the Triangle region where the Triangle J Council of Governments
has an active "green space" mapping program.  In other parts of the
state, local government recreation projects and greenways may have been
missed in the absence of an intensive local data collection effort.

Private lands are incomplete owing to inconsistent mapping capability among
private organizations, though the majority of properties are included in
this inventory with credit to the Conservation Fund and the Land Trust for
North Carolina.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Boundaries in source files were created at a scale of 1:24,000 in most
cases.  Local government properties in the Triangle J region were
derived from larger scale parcel boundaries in many instances.  State
property boundaries were created at a scale of 1:24,000 or from multiple
sources on a base of 1:24,000.

In some cases, state properties were mapped at a scale of 1:100,000 and
not yet edited for a base of 1:24,000.  Federal properties vary in
scale, from the wildlife refuge areas (1:24,000) to some of the national
forest boundaries that were mapped at a scale of 1:100,000 or smaller.

Some land trust and Fish and Wildlife Service property boundaries were
hand-drawn on USGS 1:24,000 scale quadrangles and then manually
digitized.  Easements funded by the Farmland Preservation Trust fund and
Conservation Tax Credit properties were generated from deed descriptions
and/or survey plats. Unique land identification numbers were created for
each property and data attributes were managed in a Microsoft Access
database to take advantage of relational database features and
accommodate one-to-many relationships.  For example, a single property
may have multiple funding sources and multiple land categories.
Attributes were related to the spatial data by the unique land_id.

Process_Description:
CGIA created digital spatial data for properties funded by the Farmland
Preservation Trust Fund, and for Wildlife Refuge Area easements based on
source materials including manually digitized the paper 1:24,000 USGS
quadrangles creating digital files. Processing of these files included:
editing linework, edgematching, map-joining, labeling, attributing,
running checkplots, submitting questions to source agencies, correcting
discrepancies, and creating metadata.
The integration of these new sources and existing sources followed the
following procedure:
Using the 13 source files noted above, analysts integrated the polygon
coverages into a single coverage, while retaining the original
attributes of the sources with source ids retained in the integrated
coverage.  In many cases, a single property was included in multiple
sources owing to multiple funding sources, management that differs from
ownership, and different purposes among sources.  Where a property was
depicted by multiple sources, analysts selected the most reliable
polygon to represent the property based on a rule set that reflected the
scale and methods used for mapping each of the sources.  In some cases,
analysts created additional polygons or deleted small portions of
polygons to resolve discrepancies between sources.  In many cases,
slivers representing the difference between sources were eliminated.
The integrated coverage represented each property once with source ids
to which source attributes could be joined.
More detail on the process is available from CGIA.  The integrated
coverage is not fully consistent with any one source, but it represents
a composite of the various sources.
