Managed Areas in North Carolina (October 2017)


Download Link: http://data.nconemap.gov/downloads/vector/marea.zip
Abstract: The North Carolina Natural Heritage Program's Managed Areas (marea) shapefile is primarily a collection of fee simple properties and easements where natural resource conservation is one of the primary management goals. It does include a number of properties and easements that are not primarily managed for conservation, but that are of conservation interest. This conservation interest ranges from properties and easements which support rare species and intact, high-quality natural communities to those that are open spaces in places where open space is scarce. The property and easement boundaries in this shapefile were acquired from a wide variety of sources, and in some cases their boundaries are approximate. Because of these inaccuracies, this shapefile is intended to be used as an aid to conservation planning only and not as a substitute for land survey data. Inclusion of an area in this shapefile in no way implies that the area is open to the public. Because these data can quickly become outdated, the North Carolina Natural Heritage Program (NC NHP) should be contacted before use of the data set to ensure data currency. Please use the following format when acknowledging products derived from this data set: "North Carolina Natural Heritage Program. 2017. Biotics Database. Division of Land and Water Stewardship. Department of Natural and Cultural Resources, Raleigh, North Carolina." While efforts have been made to ensure that these data are accurate and reliable, the North Carolina Natural Heritage Program cannot assume liability for any damages or misrepresentation caused by any inaccuracies in the data. Includes lands that were found in Conservation Tax Credit Properties and Land Trust Conservation Properties.
Purpose: This dataset is intended as a resource for conservation planning purposes. The collection includes lands in conservation
Supplemental Information: This dataset is the current equivalent of "Lands Managed for Conservation and Open Space" (published in 2002 with no plans for update).
