Why was the data set created?

This data is used specifically in ParkFinder 2.0 application to identify general activity locations in King County Parks.

How was the data set created?

  1. From what previous works were the data drawn?

  2. How were the data generated, processed, and modified?

    Date: 20-Jan-2016 (process 1 of 1)

    ----- 1. Delete all points. 2. Join Park_facility_point and pf_activity_lookup by facity type, keep only matching records. 3. Select (2) where owner, manager and mainted_by = 'King County Parks and Recreation'. 4. Append (3) to activity_point, no test, identify matching fields. 5. Join Park_Label_Point (only label_type = 1) and pf_bct_lookup table by sitename, keep only matching records. 6. Join (5) and pf_bct_usage table by bct name, keep all records. 7. Select (6) where hiking = yes, and append to activity_point. Leave FName and Activity as null, FType = site type (Park Site). 8. Open activity_point and calculate newly added points' Activity = "Hiking". 9. Repeat the step 7 & 8 for Horseback and MtnBiking.
