Process description:
The physiographic provinces for Leon County were mapped using a shaded relief model from the 1996 DEM data and the
digital soil data for Leon County. The physiographic provinces were delineated based on the definitions found in the
publication "The Physiography of Leon County, Florida" by Swanson etal. And the mapped boundaries from 1988
ESA.
Supplemental_Information
The elevation data used to generate the slope data may not be accurate in areas of heavy tree cover. Boundaries are
considered to reflect areas of transition.
