This dataset is the result of an ongoing effort to produce a county
wide parcel layer. Digitizing began as far back as 1996.
More recently - 2000 to 2001 - digitizing effort has been increased
in order to complete this dataset. Many corrections have been made
to this dataset, using PLS lines, USGS Quads, Aerial photographs,
and other sources where available. Most topological descrepencies
have been corrected in this dataset. This data has been reviewed
for spatial accuracy relative to the PLS lines as well as USGS 7.5
quads in some areas. This is the first version of the Humboldt County
Parcel dataset that will need future review and revisions. Land use
attributes - exlu2 & exlu4 - have been added. Existing Land Use
values - exlu4 - were created using an interpretive method.
Zoning, use codes, land ownership, and other information pertaining to
parcels were used to create "existing" land use categories.
