GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEM PROJECT


Digital spatial data representing farm landowner property boundaries and farm field boundaries (common land units or CLUs) are being developed through a cooperative effort of the Pee Dee RC&D, The University of South Carolina, The Natural Resources Conservation Service, The Farm Service Agency and the local County Governments. In addition a digital Decision Support System for the Siting of Animal Waste Facilities is being developed. This effort is being led by the Earth Sciences and Resources Institute of The University of South Carolina with primary funding through a congressional grant from Senator Earnest Hollings. The spatial data layers have been completed for Marion County and are available for use in the USDA Service Center in Marion and also on the website Marion GIS. Currently work is progressing in the development of the spatial data layers for Marlboro County with a projected completion date of December 2000. Project plans are to accelerate this effort and hopefully complete the work in Chesterfield, Darlington, and Dillon Counties next year. By using this data in conjunction with digital aerial photos and conservation practice location data captured from a global positioning system, the development of site plans is accomplished more easily with greater accuracy. This effort allows the field staffs of the Conservation Partnership to provide better service to the citizens of the Pee Dee Area.
