    Title: Cadastral Mapping Guide
    Geospatial Data Presentation Form: manual
    Other Citation Details: The Cadastral Mapping Guide describes the procedures and standards used in the preparation of the cadastral mapping by the staff of the Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission

    Description:
    Abstract: The cadastral mapping product covers approximately 576 square miles and was compiled at scales of 1:1200 and 1:2400. The accuracy standard used is National Map Accuracy for 1"=100' and 1"=200'. The maps were derived from a variety of source documents including certified survey maps, deed descriptions, subdivision maps, and condominium plats. The source materials were of several different scales and date from the early 1900's to the present. The maps provide a useful representation of the geometry and topology of tax parcels and are suitable for the intended purpose (graphical representation). The tax parcel maps are not meant to be used for the determination of land ownership, or to be in any way a substitute for the land ownership and descriptions found in individual deeds.

    Purpose: The tax parcel maps are intended to be used as one of the base layers for overlaying with other digital layers such as contours, orthophotos, and planimetric features. The tax parcel maps are intended to be used for thematic mapping, and graphical representation for analysis.

    Supplemental Information: The 1:2400 scale areas currently mapped in Waukesha County consist of the entire U.S. Public Land Survey Townships of 8 North-Range 18 East, 7 North-Range 18 East, 6 North-Range 18 East, 5 North-Range 18 East, 8 North-Range 19 East, 7 North-Range 19 East, 6 North-Range 19 East, 5 North-Range 19 East, and 7 North-Range 20 East. Additional 1:2400 mapped areas include Township 7 North-Range 17 East, Sections 1, 12, 13, and 19-36; and Township 8 North-Range 17 East, Sections 1-6, 9-16, and 24, covering the entirety of the Village of Dousman, a portion of the Village of Oconomowoc Lake and the Towns of Oconomowoc, Ottawa, and Summit. Note that the City of Waukesha data is maintained by the City and covers all of sections 3-5, 9-10 and portions of sections 1,2,8,11-17,20-22 and 29 in Township 6 North-Range 19 East and all of sections 28,29, and 31-34, and portions of sections 20-22, 26-27, 30, 35-36 in Township 7 North-Range 19 East, and portions of sections 30 and 31 in Township 7 North-Range 20 East. This data is available from the City of Waukesha. The 1:1200 scale areas currently mapped in Waukesha County consist of the entire U.S. Public Land Survey Townships of 8 North-Range 20 East, 6 North-Range 20 East, 5 North-Range 20 East. Additional 1:1200 mapped areas include Township 7 North-Range 17 East, Sections 2-11, and 14-18; and Township 8 North-Range 17 East, Sections 7-8, 17-23, and 25-36,covering the entirety of the City of Oconomowoc and the Village of Lac La Belle, and a portion of the Village of Oconomowoc Lake and the Towns of Oconomowoc and Summit.

    Attribute Accuracy:
    Attribute Accuracy Report: 100% of the original data compiled for these maps was completed and quality control checked by the Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission (SEWRPC). Monthly database matches are run against the County's tax file to insure parcels mapped match parcels on the tax roll. Logical Consistency Report: Arc-node topology exists
    Completeness Report: To the best knowledge of the Waukesha County Land Information Office, this coverage includes all property parcels within the geographic extents of the coverage.

    Positional Accuracy:
    Horizontal Positional Accuracy:
    Horizontal Positional Accuracy Report: This data set was prepared to meet National Map Accuracy Standards for one-inch equals 100 feet scale mapping and for one-inch equals 200 feet scale mapping. Therefore, ninety percent of all well defined planimetric features in this data set are within either 3.3 feet (1"=100') or 6.6 feet (1"=200') of their true position.

    Process Step:
    Process Description: There were two methods used to digitize the cadastral features in Waukesha County. Most of the eastern half of the county was completed by board digitizing either quarter section, or section-based mylars. These mylars were constructed using USPLSS monuments and quarter section and section lines, as well as various planimetric features, (pavement, structures and water features) as a base. Each section was then manually drafted using Subdivision Plats, Certified Survey Maps, Condominium Plats, Deeds of Record, and the County Tax Roll. The mylars were then registered and board digitized. COGO entry using distance and bearing was used for most of the western half of the county. Both methods were quality controlled by generating a series of seven color check plots. The features were checked for positional accuracy, as well as for adherence to the County's level/layering specification.

    Entity & Attribute Information - Section Index
    Overview Description:
    Entity and Attribute Overview: Much of the original data compilation was done using Genamap GIS software on Unix workstations. The data was then translated to the Intergraph Microstation/MGE GIS platform. In Q1 of 2004 the data was translated to an ESRI SDE Geodatabase. The TaxParcel polygon feature class used for linking to tax assessment information has a field named TaxKey that holds either an 11 or 14 digit alpha-numeric number where; characters 1 through 4 are alpha and comprise the municipal code, characters 5 through 8 are numeric and serve as quarter section identification numbers, characters 9 through 11 are numeric and represent the parcel id, and characters 12 through 14 are numeric and are used for splits. For use in the GIS/Mapping System, condominium parcels differ from the conventional numbering system. These numbers are assigned a tax key of "CONDO" as a flag for joint ownership. The management of these and other jointly owned properties (e.g. Outlots and Common Areas) is done using the MAPID field and a set of relationships between the MAPIDRELATE table, the CURRENTSHAREDINTEREST table and the SharedInterest polygon feature class. The MAPIDRELATE/TaxParcel relationship class is a 1 to Many relationship to account for multiple ownerhship parcels.

    Entity and Attribute Detail Citation: Detailed specifications of all features and their respective symbologies are contained in a document entitled "LandRecordsDataDictionary.pdf" written by the Waukesha County Land Information Office.
