GIS Lookup: Detailed Data Layer Listing

Data Layer GraphicTitle: "Landfills" (2004)
Description: The North Carolina State Energy Office in the Department of Administration supported the NC Center for Geographic Information and Analysis to develop a point layer of landfill locations in North Carolina, based on the inventory prepeared by the US EPA Landfill Methane Outreach Program. This set of Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP) Landfill Sites represent sites with methane gas generation potential. Methane gas is a byproduct of solid waste decomposition in landfills. The file identifies landfills in North Carolina from the LMOP Landfill Project, verfied using information provided by the Division of Waste Management, NC Department of Environment and Natural Resources. In addition, CGIA created 10-mile buffers around each landfill point and analyzed company locations within the buffers based on a dataset derived for the State Energy Office by the Appalachian Regional Development Institute at Appalachian State University from a Harris Company commercial database. This data set was created to assist governmental agencies and others in making resource management decisions through use of a Geographic Information System (GIS).
