Title: Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary Boundary (polygons)
Short Name: cinms_py
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2008-06
Abstract:

The Office of National Marine Sanctuaries manages a system of sanctuaries and other managed areas around the country. The legal boundaries of these sanctuaries are defined within the Code of Federal Regulations, at 15 C.F.R. Part 922 and the subparts for each national marine sanctuary. The GIS compatible digital boundary files for each national marine sanctuary are representations of those legal boundaries and are based on the best available data. These files are available for public use at locations defined in this metadata record.

Purpose:

These GIS compatible digital files are provided to promote an understanding of the boundaries of each national marine sanctuary. They are based on the legal definition of each sanctuary as defined in the Code of Federal Regulations, at 15C.F.R. Part 922 and the subparts for each national marine sanctuary. These digital files are not intended and should not be relied upon for use in navigation or legal purposes. For legal questions relating to the digital files, please contact the ONMS at the information provided in this metadata record.

Data Quality

Accuracy:

Attributes were standardized by feature type (point, line, and polygon)across all sanctuary boundaries. The values recorded for each attributewere quality assured and believed to be accurate.

Horizontal Positional Accuracy:

Positional accuracy will vary depending on source

Vertical Positional Accuracy:

Positional accuracy will vary

Completeness Report:

Where possible, the entire boundary for the sanctuary is represented by this digital file.

Conceptual Consistency:

The data were topologically cleaned.

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 601989
Description:

The geographic boundary coordinates listed within the United StatesCode of Federal Regulations (CFR) were converted to decimal degreesand a text file was created. A point coverage was then generatedusing ArcInfo GIS. The coverage was projected into the GeographicCoordinate System and overlaid on large scale nautical charts andanalyzed with additional data such as adjacent sanctuaries andshorelines. Specific attention was given to analysis ofinconsistencies between textual descriptions and listedcoordinates. The polyline files were created using a combination of thecoordinate list from the CFR and applicable shoreline vector files. Forpoint files, two methods were used. If the sanctuary had a shorelinecomponent, a polyline to point script was used to create a point foreach vertice. If a shoreline component was not present, then theoriginal coordinates from the CFR were used to create a point shapefile.Polygon files were created by converting polylines to polygons.
