California Central Valley Dairies (CAFOs), California, 2006, CRWQCB
All data for the Central Valley, California dairies (CAFOs) GIS dataset were collected by the California Regional Water Quality Control Board - Region 5, Fresno and Sacramento offices during dairy inspections from 2005 to 2006. 91% of the locations were located using a Trimble GeoExplorer 3 hand held unit during dairy inspections. Locations represent the street front of the facility. The additional 9% were located using Tele Atlas address geocoding services. All dairy locations were verified using the most current high resolution air photos available from GlobeExplorer's Image Connect and Tele Atlas street data. All attribute information was acquired by RWQCB personnel during inspections of dairy sites. Animal units were calculated by RWQCB personnel.
The Central_Valley_Dairies GIS data set was developed for the purpose of locating areas with the highest concentrations of dairy cows, and thus, the best economies of scale for projects to treat dairy manure.
