Abstract

Architect of the Capitol jurisdiction boundary. The dataset contains locations and attributes of the Architect of the Capitol jurisdiction boundary, created as part of the DC Geographic Information System (DC GIS) for the D.C. Office of the Chief Technology Officer (OCTO) and participating D.C. government agencies.

The boundary was identified from public records (including the Architect's http://www.aoc.gov/cc/cc_map.htm ) and heads-up digitized using a combination of the 1995/1999 orthophotographs and planimetric roads features.

All DC GIS data is stored and exported in Maryland State Plane coordinates NAD 83 meters.

METADATA CONTENT IS IN PROCESS OF VALIDATION AND SUBJECT TO CHANGE.

Purpose

This data is used for the planning and management of Washington, D.C. by local government agencies.

Access constraints

The boundary was identified from the map published on the Architect of the Capitol's website ( http://www.aoc.gov/cc/cc_map.htm ) and heads-up digitized using a combination of the 1995 orthophotographs and planimetric roads features.

A base ArcInfo coverage of correct linework (snapbase.e00) for all DC data was developed after the final delivery of the planimetric street centerlines. The datasets were selected using the above shapefile from the snapbase coverage, creating coincident geography with the other DC GIS datasets. These planimetric features were built as lines and used to create polygons.

This polygon was generated from the AOCLn feature.
Planimetrics were created at a scale of 1:1,000. This means that a well defined feature falls within two feet of true position.

All DC GIS data is stored and exported in Maryland State Plane coordinates NAD 83 meters.

Distribution

Most DC GIS datasets can be downloaded from "http://dcgis.dc.gov" on the data center page. Orders can also be made by contacting OCTO GIS at "dcgis@dc.gov", especially for datasets not available for download.
