Title: Michigan (Lower Peninsula) GAP Land Stewardship Coverage
Edition: Version 1.0
Geospatial_Data_Presentation_Form: vector digital data
Description:
Abstract:
State, federal and trust (The Nature Conservancy) land boundaries available in digital format with minimum mapping units of 40 acres. Land unit polygons attributed with ownership and manager values and assigned a GAP management status value of 1-4. Dataset is in the Michigan GeoRef coordinate system.
Purpose:
This data was developed as part of the Michigan GAP analysis project. Information produced by the Michigan GAP program will help provide an overview of the distribution and management of Michigan's wildlife and land cover diversity. The land stewardship component of the GAP project combines the attributes of ownership, management, and a measure of intent to maintain biodiversity in order for land stewards to make informed decisions about their management practices.

MI National Wildlife Refuges projected into Michigan GeoRef and shapefile modified by removing land parcels from Shiawassee NWR which were listed as 'Proposed' but not yet part of the refuge. Shapefiles for all Michigan federal lands (forests, parks, and refuges) merged together into a single federal land shapefile. Federal shapefile then converted to an Arc polygon coverage using SHAPEARC and REGIONPOLY. Extraneous fields in attribute table were dropped.

Process_Description:
State ownership shapefile attribute table modified by dropping extraneous fields. Table queried for land units (quarter-quarter sections) containing state surface ownership (Surf_cnt > 0 or Fee_cnt > 0), selected features were converted to a new shapefile. GAP attribute fields added to table for adding record data. DNR facilities shapefile used as overlay in order to populate specific ownership, manager, and unit information where state owned 40 acre polygons intersected facilities polygons. Areas which contained a DNR facilty, but in which no 40 acre state parcels existed (i.e. areas with French claims) were added manually to a temporary shapefile (State_Adds) using boundaries from the DNR Facilities shapefile and checked with Rockford Plats for the areas concerned. State Land and State_Adds shapefiles converted to Arc coverages using SHAPEARC, CLEAN (0.1 tolerance) and REGIONPOLY to build polygon topology. Extraneous fields dropped from both coverages and tables modified to allow merging. Coverages intersected to locate significant overlaps, none found, and then merged together using MAPJOIN. Sliver and small polygons (<= 100 sq. m) were eliminated. Single statewide coverage then clipped along Great Lakes shoreline using MI Outline coverage and sliver polygons eliminated.

Process_Description:
Modified Federal-TNC Land coverage attribute table to match State Land table. Federal-TNC Land coverage clipped along the northwest Lower Peninsula Great Lakes shoreline (Sleeping Bear Dunes and TNC*269 areas) with modified MI Outline coverage due to excessive overlap into Lake Michigan and which was missed at earlier stages. The INTERSECT Arc command was used to locate areas of overlap between the State Land and Federal-TNC coverages. Since there were a number of overlapping areas, records in the intersect coverage were updated to reflect whether polygons were State inholdings among Federal-TNC land or the reverse case. The intersect coverage was then SPLIT into two coverages to be used with the ERASE Arc command in order to make "holes" in the complimentary coverage for a MAPJOIN to work properly. For instance, the State inholdings intersect coverage was used to ERASE polygons in the Federal-TNC, thereby creating a space for a polygon from the State coverage. Following MAPJOIN of the coverages, topology and the attrubute table were checked for errors or discrepencies. A large number of sliver polygons were eliminated, manually and using the ELIMINATE Arc command, primarily where State and Federal boundaries did not edgematch cleanly. The statewide coverage was clipped into two separate coverages, Upper Peninsula and Lower Peninsula, due to the large number of records.
