DERIVATION METHODS FOR DATA: This data layer was created using a combination of existing local data sources compared against property ownership records and Dept of Revenue land use codes. Record locations identified were placed by means of on-screen (heads-up) digitizing of cemetery locations in ArcGIS. Other sources included modern and historic aerial photography as well as scanned, georeferenced, 1:24,000 scale USGS quadrangles in geographic coordinates (latitude/longitude, NAD27) that were used as background reference. In many cases the cemeteries already appeared on the quadrangle maps.

 

LIMITATIONS OF THE DATA/WARNINGS TO THE USER: The historic cemetery data are based on field reports which have been submitted by many and varied individuals, groups, institutions, and cultural resource firms. The locations are only as accurate as the location information submitted by the site recorder. The accuracy of submitted information cannot always be verified. The absence of a cultural resource in this data layer does not preclude the existence of an unrecorded resource in the field. The cemeteries recorded do not represent all the historic cemeteries present in Volusia County. The locations of archaeological sites, historic structures, unmarked human burials, cemeteries, and other cultural features contained in this data set are for resource management, law enforcement, and research purposes only. State law protects archaeological remains on state owned and controlled lands section 267.13, Florida Statutes. State law protects human burial sites on all lands under sections 872.02 and 872.05, Florida Statutes.
