Description:
Abstract:
This data layer consists of County-, State and Municipal Parks, Open Spaces and Parkway Lands and  is a result of a comprehensive county-wide update to the 1994 major open spaces GIS data layer and map. The layer was derived from the "wcospace" layer which serves as the master coverage of all county open space. 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 County ans State Open Spaces and Parkway Lands. This data layer represents more than 25,000 acres.
Supplemental_Information:
This coverage is in Arc/Info export format. Coordinate System: New York State Plane, FIPS zone: 3101 (Formerly East Zone 4801), Units: Feet, North American Datum 1983.  This coverage can be accessed electronically by clicking on the link below, or visit the Westchester County GIS web site to download this coverage along with additional Westchester County data layers. http://giswww.westchestergov.com
