Description: The California land use survey data set was developed by DWR
through it's Division of Planning and Local Assistance. The data was
gathered using aerial photography and extensive field visits, the land
use boundaries and attributes were digitized, and the resultant data
went through standard quality control procedures before finalizing.
The land uses that were gathered were detailed agricultural land uses,
and lesser detailed urban and native vegetation land uses. The data
was gathered and digitized by DWR staff within the applicable county's district and the
quality control procedures were performed jointly by staff at DWR's
DPLA headquarters in Sacramento.
The finalized data include DWG files (land use vector data) and shape
files (land use vector data).
