Abstract:
This data layer updated in 2004 represents a comprehensive county-wide update to the 1994 major open spaces GIS data layer and map. This data layer was again updated in June of 2006 to show new acquisitions of County and State Parks and Water Supply Lands. Classified in 12 open space categories, it includes many smaller properties that were not previously mapped. Properties classified as Farms were primarily derived from the Westchester County Agricultural District established in 2000. A variety of sources were used to compile this information, including aerial photography, digital tax parcel data, and local recreation, land use and master plan maps. Other sources included municipal planning departments and consultants, conservation committees and the Westchester Land Trust.
Purpose:
This data was developed as an aid to planners and consultants for visual and data analysis of open spaces in Westchester County. The data includes 12 categories: County and State Parks & Parkway Lands; Local Parks & Open Space; Nature Preserves; Private Recreation; Public & Private Institutions; Public Non-Park Lands; Cemeteries; Water Supply Lands; Agricultural Lands. This data layer used in conjunction with the County Waterbodies data represents a network of open space totalling more than 104,000 acres or 36% of the total county land.
