The building footprints were compiled from building corners collected with GPS equipment in the summer of 2003 and then merged with older building polygon data originating from blueprints (Potable Water and Fire Protection Lines Blueprint #381/41002A sheet 2 of 11) provided by the LIBI staff and softcopy data available from the US Census Bureau. Originally the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument (LIBI) GIS program was created from academic research and coursework in the Department of Economics and Geography, United States Air Force Academy (USAFA). Some of the GIS data was brought up-to-date or supplemented with GPS data in 2003 collect by NPS employees. This dataset was updated in July 2009 to reflect changes made to buildings after 2003. Updates to the dataset were digitized using institutional knowledge as well as GPS points. Institutional knowledge and GPS points were provided by LIBI staff members. Digitization and editing was done by NPS Intermountain Region Geographic Resources Program staff. See attached scanned reference drawings that were used to digitize this dataset by clicking on the Metadata Properties button on Metadata toolbar then clicking the Enclosures tab and finally double-clicking the enclosed file whose content you want to see. The enclosures are saved as jpegs and should open automatically in the appropriate application.
