The Dirt is in the Details - A Trails Spatial Join Toolset
Track: Parks, Natural Reserves, Fisheries, and Wildlife Management
Authors: Chris White
After identifying a lack of spatial connection of Jefferson County Open Space’s trails and park boundary data sets, a computational toolset was created to spatially connect Jefferson County Open Space’s trail and park data to their newly acquired LiDAR terrain data. This toolset can be applied to all of their current parks and future land acquisitions, enabling the GIS team to better serve the organization as a whole by creating more robust park and trail data sets.
