Abstract:
This data set consist of all water features that cover a relevant area in Union County. This data set was orginally created to assist in property appraisal for the Union County Offices. This data set is also used in many planning functions such as wastewater sytem planning and stormwater management. The features collected in this data set were originally created by L.R. Kimball and Associates. The source for the data was black and white digital orthos taken on 2-14-1994 and 2-28-1994. Kimball collected the data at a 1 inch = 400 feet scale in a stereo plotter. The data was submitted to Union County in the 1"=400' tiles in ArcInfo export format. Later the Union County GIS Department appended all of the tiles to create this county wide seamless coverage. Since the orginal creation of this data set in 1995 there have been no complete updates.
Purpose:
Used to determine amount of land that is coved by water for appraisal, stormwater management and planning.
