EEP PARCEL INFORMATION
Parcel information for all EEP projects is being created for use by landowners, planners, consultants and research institutions. To be useful for such a broad community, EEP is first developing this information in an ESRI geodatabase environment. The metadata associated with this effort includes PDF-format copies of the recorded documents used to protect these conservation areas. If the PDF of the recorded document is not available, there are references to the deed book and page for the county where the documents were recorded.
EEP realizes the limitations in sharing this ESRI-based data with the general public and is concurrently making the data available through Google Earth. In this environment, the viewable boundaries may vary from what is actually protected on the ground. Google Earth has difficulties in projecting curves for example. Wherever a plat and deed descibe a curve, such as along a road right-of-way, Google Earth may draw a straight line. Even though this data may be incomplete and has some shortcomings, EEP believes that it is a very useful data set to share.
The ESRI-based file will open in ArcGIS and is in a geodatabase file format.
