Description:
Abstract:
This data set contains tax Ditches in Somerset, Wicomico, and Worcester county, Maryland. In the Summer and Fall of 2004 the ESRGC assisted the Maryland Department of Agriculture in digitizing and annotating tax ditches and public drainage associations in selected areas on the Lower Eastern Shore. Since 2004 the ESRGC and MD Dept. of Agriculture have completed the Lower Shore and Caroline County. A comprehensive digital representation of Caroline County Tax Ditches and PDAs will be available December 2006. Tax ditches and PDA boundaries from the Wicomico, Manokin, Nanticoke, Pocomoke, Choptank, and Coastal Bays watersheds are available for free download. This data sets can be found at http://www.esrgc.org/tditches.htm.
Purpose:
The purpose of this data set is to support continued efforts to create digital tax ditch and watershed layers for Maryland's Lower Eastern Shore.
Supplemental_Information:
This layer contains tax ditch lines digitized from paper maps provided by the Dept. of Agriculture. This layer includes ditches digitized in Summer 2004 and Fall 2004.
