Data accuracy


This dataset was created for use as a reference layer for digital and hardcopy maps and applications.  This data should not be used as a measure of building square footage, as the individual polygons only represent the square footage of the footprint at ground level as visible from aerial photography.  The building may or may not have multiple floors of varying areas.
