Land Use / Land Cover 1995

Interactive map information:
The SFWMD Landuse 1995 layer described below was cropped and cut into 1:100,000 USGS quads using ArcView 3.3. Each shapefile was reprojected to UTM, Zone 17, WGS 84 using ArcToolbox 8.3. A new field, "LUCODE4", was added to the dbfs for each shapefile with the following values:
If LUCODE3 >= 1000 and LUCODE3 < 2000, LUCODE4 = 1000 (Developed)
If LUCODE3 >= 2000 and LUCODE3 < 3000, LUCODE4 = 2000 (Agriculture)
If LUCODE3 >= 4000 and LUCODE3 < 5000, LUCODE4 = 4000 (Upland Forests)
If LUCODE3 >= 5000 and LUCODE3 < 6000, LUCODE4 = 5000 (Water)
If LUCODE3 >= 6000 and LUCODE3 < 7000, LUCODE4 = 6000 (Wetlands)
If LUCODE3 = 6120, LUCODE4 = 6120 (Mangroves)
The shapefiles were imported into ArcInfo 8.3 and dissolved based on the LUCODE4 field (shapearc, clean, regionpoly, dissolve). The dissolved coverages were generalized to 30m in ArcView 3.3 using the Point & Polyline Tools v1.2 extension.
