Summary

To provide a statewide GIS data layer for all Florida Forever Board of Trustees projects on the current list approved by the Acquisition and Restoration Council (ARC).

Description

FLORIDA FOREVER BOT PROJECTS (layer name FFBOT): This is a polygon data layer for Florida Forever Board of Trustees (BOT) projects (formerly known as CARL projects). This data layer is site-based and contains boundaries of all Florida Forever BOT projects approved by the State's Acquisition and Restoration Council as of August 24, 2018. These lands have been proposed for acquisition because of outstanding natural resources, opportunity for natural resource-based recreation, or historical and archaeological resources. However, these areas may not be currently managed for their resource value. Portions of these projects may have already been acquired by the State and/or its acquisition partners.

Description
This GIS data layer was generated by the Florida Natural Areas Inventory (FNAI) using ArcGIS v 10.6. Boundary information for Florida Forever BOT projects was provided by the Florida Forever Program, Office of Environmental Services, Division of State Lands, Florida Department of Environmental Protection. Boundary information was originally in either digital format or on paper source maps with varying scales. Digital boundary files were received from various sources and integrated into FFBOT by FNAI staff. In the case of paper source maps, FNAI staff digitized these boundaries (on screen or with digitizer) using 1:24000 7.5' USGS quadrangles as base maps. The following digitizers were used by the FNAI GIS: CalComp DBII, accuracy of +/- .01 inch CalComp DBIII, accuracy of +/- .005 inch CalComp 9500 Series, accuracy of +/- .005 inch When digital boundaries from one source overlapped with digital boundaries from another source, the boundaries were adjusted by FNAI staff to eliminate the overlapping areas. Adjustments were made based on the best known information about the source of the boundaries. All overlaps greater than 0.002 meters were removed using this process.

Field SITENAME
 
Field description
SITENAME = Site name.  The name of the Florida Forever BOT project, or portion of the project, represented by the site.  For Florida Forever BOT projects that are composed of multiple sites (e.g., Dade County Archipelago Florida Forever BOT Project), the SITENAME for each site begins with the name of the project, and this is followed by the name of the particular site within the project (e.g., Dade County Archipelago Florida Forever BOT Project - Whispering Pines).

Field PROJECT_NA
 
Field description
PROJECT_NA = Project name.  The name of the Florida Forever BOT project that the site is contained within.  Most projects contain only one site (e.g., Caloosahatchee Ecoscape Florida Forever BOT Project), but some projects are composed of multiple sites (e.g., Lake Wales Ridge Ecosystem Florida Forever BOT Project).  Since all sites belonging to a project have the same PROJECT_NA, a query conducted on this attribute will select the entire Florida Forever BOT project.
