Description:
Abstract:
Polygons locating the Important Farmlands in Napa County.

Purpose:
To display information about the status of local farmlands. The data was compiled from two types of maps: Important Farmland maps for California for those areas that have modern soil surveys and Interim Farmland Maps for those areas lacking modern soil survey information and for which there is expressed local concern on the status of Napa County's local farmland.

Supplemental information:
Important Farmland maps for California are compiled using USDA-NRCS. 
Soil Surveys and current land use information using eight mapping categories. Technical definitions for these map categories can be found in "A Guide for the Farmland Mapping and Monitoring Program".
The minimum mapping unit is 10 acres. Units of land smaller than 10 acres are incorporated into the surrounding 
map categories.
