Description: Agricultural security areas are intended to promote more permanent and viable farming operations over the long term by strengthening the farming community's sense of security in land use and the right to farm. Agricultural security areas are created by local municipalities in cooperation with individual landowners who agree to collectively place at least 250 acres in an agricultural security area. This is the Ag Security Easements in York County, Pennsylvania. Intended for illustration and demonstration purposes only. Layer should not be used with scales larger than 1:2400

Type: Feature Layer
Geometry Type: esriGeometryPolygon
Description: This shapefile contains the Core Habitat of Biological Diversity Areas identified through the County Natural Heritage Inventory program of the Pennsylvania Natural Heritage Program. County Natural Heritage Inventories focus on areas that are the best examples of ecological resources in a county. Although agricultural lands and open space may be included as part of inventory areas, the emphasis for the designation and delineation of the areas are the ecological values present. Important selection criteria for Natural Heritage Areas are the existence of habitat for plants and animals of special concern, the existence of uncommon or especially important natural communities, and the size and landscape context of a site containing good quality natural features. Large areas and areas that are minimally disturbed by development provide the backbone that links habitats and allows plants and animals to shift and move across sizable portions of the landscape. Core Habitat areas are intended to identify the essential habitat of the species of concern or natural community that can absorb very little activity or disturbance without substantial impact to the natural features. Polygons are based on aerial photo interpretation, field surveys, and existing PNDI data and were delineated by the ecologists on-screen using ArcView (ESRI, Inc., Version 3.3, 8x, and 9x) with the 1:24,000 scale USGS Digital Raster Graphics and/or Digital Aerial Photography images as a background. For each core habitat polygon, the attribute table contains fields indicating the Site Name and Significance. See individual CNHI reports for further information on methodology, site descriptions, and species or communities found at each site.

Description: 2003 York County Landcover Layer. Aerial Imagery used for creation of this dataset was from PAMAP program in 2003. Other Layers Used in this layer is Parcels (for snapping and Landuse codes), Lakes and Ponds, Parks, Roads buffered to 11 feet on each side, Streams buffered to 6 feet on each side and Railroads buffered to 8 feet on each side. Dataset has been dissvoled except for Road Rightaway which has been dissolved by tiles that are used in the PAMAP program. Oldest oblqiue and google streetview was used as well. Intended for illustration and demonstration purposes only.
The following is a version of the Anderson Land Use/Land Cover classification adopted by Penn State University (Land Analysis Lab) for the Chesapeake Bay Basin Land Cover/Land Use Monitoring and Assessment Study.
Description: This data set is a digital soil survey and generally is the most detailed level of soil geographic data developed by the National Cooperative Soil Survey. The information was prepared by digitizing maps, by compiling information onto a planimetric correct base and digitizing, or by revising digitized maps using remotely sensed and other information. This data set consists of georeferenced digital map data and computerized attribute data. The map data are in a soil survey area extent format and include a detailed, field verified inventory of soils and miscellaneous areas that normally occur in a repeatable pattern on the landscape and that can be cartographically shown at the scale mapped. A special soil features layer (point and line features) is optional. This layer displays the location of features too small to delineate at the mapping scale, but they are large enough and contrasting enough to significantly influence use and management. The soil map units are linked to attributes in the National Soil Information System relational database, which gives the proportionate extent of the component soils and their properties.
