Does anyone have a layer for CAFOs? If you do, how did you obtain it? I can't find contact info or really a good place to start to find a data layer.
Hi Lisa, that data is tracked by KDHE, but it is not shared publicly due to security/privacy concerns. You are welcome to reach out to Nolita LaVoie (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information, but that layer is even restricted within KDHE.
We have a service for CAFOS (our Planning calls them Feedlots) that we use in several apps for Planning & Dev Dept. They are symbolized by 1-999 animal units and 1000+ animal units with buffers of 1320' for the 1-999 animal units and 5280' for the 1000+. Planning uses them for busting peoples dreams for development near CAFOS. (see attached snippet from the app they are in)
Thanks, I have the same with P&Z but the data is a little sketchy. Also, thank you Amy as well. I figured it might be restricted since I couldn't find it. I will just use my nose and sniff them out, it will be more fun to map them that way.
