GIS polygon feature layer depicts 500 foot environs zone (buffer zone) around State-approved Wyandotte County, KS historic Landmarks that establishes preservation-related control by State statute over properties within or touched by the 500 foot buffers. Landmarks are officially designated at the city, state, and/or national level. A Landmark is a building, site, structure, or object that has this historic recognition status. This environs layer is buffered from overall Landmark site grounds or property boundary, but not structure outlines if it is a building.
Companion GIS dataset of Historic Landmarks is named historic_landmrk_py.shp. See its metadata for information about Landmark feature overlaps, omissions, and discrepancies.
Furnished in ESRI shapefile format in Kansas North State Plane coordinates, NAD83, units US feet.
Metadata elements shown with blue text are defined in the Federal Geographic Data Committee's (FGDC) Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM). Elements shown with green text are defined in the ESRI Profile of the CSDGM. Elements shown with a green asterisk (*) will be automatically updated by ArcCatalog. ArcCatalog adds hints indicating which FGDC elements are mandatory; these are shown with gray text.

Provides supplementary cultural GIS dataset to support Unified Government's Enterprise GIS. Useful for historic preservation, city planning/zoning studies, and general city/county base maps. Should be used in conjunction with its parent dataset, historic_landmrk_py.shp

Presumed to be an accurate translation of historic landmark documents (see Source Information).
Each environs buffer poly uses its corrresponding feature in historic_landmrks_py as in_feature, and uses buffer linetype of round, to produce half circles at polygon corners
All known historic landmarks in Wyandotte County, KS which have city, state, and/or national designation should be included in this dataset. But there are some discrepancies noted in a GSS review of this dataset, namely several missing landmarks and some demolished landmarks appear in this dataset.
Feature basis for buffering is companion dataset historic_landmrk_py, believed to be an accurate translation of historic landmark boundaries documents (see Source Information). Where tax parcels GIS layer was source of historic landmark boundary(s), locational accuracy of grounds polygon is same as tax parcels layer. Buffering was done in the software program.
Furnishes an officially published description of historic landmarks in Wyandotte County, Kansas.
