This layer's FGDC category description is: Governmental Units

Data Set Description: This layer delineates the planning areas in the City of Oakland, as designated by the Office of Planning and Building. Planning areas are useful for dividing large datasets into more manageable sizes--for example, the parcels are subdivided along planning area boundaries.

Non-standard Attributes in table:

  • U_ID: Provides the user with a unique indentfying number for each polygon in the layer.
  • NAME: Name of planning area. (e.g. Lower Hills)

Data Source History: CH2M Hill delivered this layer to OCIS without documentation. The file was in Arc/Info format and contained splined annotation of the planning area names.

Quality Check: Julia Howlett corrected irregularities to the Planning area dataset during her work with parcel libraries. The planning area boundary separating the Fruitvale area from the San Antonio area divided parcels and had to be realigned along rear lot lines.
