Item Identification

Title: Hawaii ESI: MGT (Management Area Polygons)
Short Name: Hawaii_mgt
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2001-11
Abstract:

This data set contains management area data for artificial reefs, designated critical habitats, national parks, marine sanctuaries, special management areas, state/regional parks, and wildlife refuges in Hawaii. Vector polygons in this data set represent management areas. Location-specific type and source information is stored in relational data tables (described below) designed to be used in conjunction with this spatial data layer. This data set comprises a portion of the Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) data for Hawaii. ESI data characterize the marine and coastal environments and wildlife by their sensitivity to spilled oil. The ESI data include information for three main components: shoreline habitats, sensitive biological resources, and human-use resources. See also the SOCECON (Socioeconomic Resource Points) data layer, part of the larger Hawaii ESI database, for additional human-use information.

Purpose:

The ESI data were collected, mapped, and digitized to provide environmental data for oil spill planning and response. The Clean Water Act with amendments by the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 requires response plans for immediate and effective protection of sensitive resources.

Data Set Information

Data Set Scope Code: Data Set
Maintenance Frequency: None Planned
Data Presentation Form: vector digital data
Entity Attribute Overview:

In addition to the geographic data layers, two relational attribute or data tables, SOC_DAT and SOURCES, are used to store the complex socioeconomic data in the ESI data structure. The geographic data layer containing socioeconomic resource information (in this case, MGT) is linked to the Socioeconomic Resources table (SOC_DAT) using the unique ID and the lookup table SOC_LUT, or it can be linked directly using HUNUM. HUNUM is a unique reference number concatenated with the atlas number (for Hawaii this is 65). ID is a unique combination of the atlas number (65), an element specific number (MGT = 11) and a unique record number. SOC_DAT and the other relational data tables are described below in detail. See the Browse_Graphic section for a link to the entity-relationship diagram, which describes the way these tables relate to the geographic data layers and other attribute tables in the ESI data structure.

Access Information

Security Class: Unclassified
Data Access Procedure:

Contact NOAA for distribution options (see Distributor). ESI data are processed into multiple formats to make them useful to a wider community of GIS/mapping users. Distribution formats include ARC export, MOSS and Shape files, and MARPLOT map folders. An ArcView ESI project and ESI_Viewer product are also included on the distribution CDs for ease of use of the ESI data. The database files are distributed both in the NOAA standard relational database format (see NOAA Technical Memorandum NOS ORCA 115) and in a simplified desktop flat file format. This metadata document includes information on both of these database formats.;

Data Access Constraints:

None

Data Use Constraints:

DO NOT USE MAPS FOR NAVIGATIONAL PURPOSES. Besides the above warning, there are no use constraints on these data. Note that the ESI database should not be used to the exclusion of other pertinent data or information held by state or federal agencies or other organizations. Likewise, information contained in the database cannot be used in place of consultations with environmental, natural resource, and cultural resource agencies, or in place of field surveys. Recognize that the information contained in the ESI database represents known concentration areas or occurrences of natural, cultural, and human-use resources, but does not necessarily represent the full distribution or range of each species or resource. This is particularly important to recognize when considering potential impacts to protected resources, such as endangered species, wetlands, etc. Acknowledgment of the originators, publishers, contributors, and sources listed would be appreciated in products derived from these data.

Technical Environment

Description:

The software packages used to develop the atlas are Environmental Systems Research Institute's ARC/INFO(r) (version 8.0.2) and ORACLE(r) RDBMS (version 8.0.5.0.0). The hardware configuration is Hewlett Packard workstations (models 715/50 and 712/80i with 4 X-terminals) with UNIX operating system (HP-UX Release A.10.20), and PC's with Windows Operating System (NT4.0/2000). The Spatial_Data_Organization _Information section refers only to the source files in the ARC export format. The following files are included in that data set: bathy.e00, birds.e00, bio_lut.e00, biofile.e00, biores.e00, breed.e00, breed_dt.e00, cass_pt.e00, esi.e00, fish.e00, fishpt.e00, habitats.e00, habpt.e00, hydro.e00, index.e00, invert.e00, invertpt.e00, m_mammals.e00, m_mampt.e00, mgt.e00, nests.e00, pools.e00, reptiles.e00, reptpt.e00, seasonal.e00, soc_dat.e00, soc_lut.e00, socecon.e00, sources.e00, species.e00, status.e00. Associated relational and desktop data tables provided in ARC export and text format are bio_lut, biofile, biores, breed, breed_dt, seasonal, soc_dat, soc_lut, socecon, sources, species, and status.

Data Quality

Accuracy:

A multi-stage error checking process is used to verify both attribute accuracy and logical consistency throughout data production. The process includes a standardized data entry methodology, hardcopy data review by in-house and external resource experts, a final Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) process, and multiple automated logical consistency checks. Quantitative data (such as densities, counts, abundances, or concentrations) provided by resource experts for inclusion in the data set may vary widely in attribute accuracy, depending upon the methodology used to collect and compile such data. For a more detailed evaluation of source data attribute accuracy, contact the sources listed in the Lineage section.

Horizontal Positional Accuracy:

The MGT data set was developed from pre-existing digital and hardcopy sources and largely reflects the positional accuracy of these original data. It is difficult to estimate the positional accuracy of such data, except to state that they are compiled on basemaps with a scale of 1:24,000. See the Lineage and Process_Description sections for more information on the original source data and how these data were integrated or manipulated to create the final data set.

Completeness Report:

These data represent a synthesis of hardcopy maps for artificial reefs, designated critical habitats, and state parks, and digital boundaries for national parks, marine sanctuaries, special management areas, state/regional parks, and wildlife refuges. These data do not represent all management areas in the state of Hawaii. Refer to the SOCECON (Socioeconomic Resource Points) data layer for additional human-use information.

Conceptual Consistency:

A multi-stage error checking process, described in the above Attribute_Accuracy_Report, is used to verify both attribute accuracy and logical consistency throughout data production. This process includes multiple automated logical consistency checks that test the files for missing or duplicate data, rules for proper coding, GIS topological consistencies (such as dangles, unnecessary node, etc.), and ORACLE(r) to ARC/INFO(r) consistencies. A final review is made by the GIS manager, where the data are written to CD-ROM and the metadata are written. After the data are delivered to NOAA, they are again subjected to a number of quality and consistency checks.

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 603511
Description:

Two main sources of data were used to depict management areas for this data layer: 1) various hardcopy documents, including NOAA nautical charts, U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) topographic quadrangles, and the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Designated Critical Habitat maps for Hawaiian monk seals; and 2) HI Statewide GlS Program data sets for national parks, marine sanctuaries, special management areas, state/regional parks, and wildlife refuges. Geographic boundaries for management areas were extracted from the following HI Statewide GIS Program digital data sets (corresponding socioeconomic types used in this data layer are shown in parentheses): 1994 Fisheries Management Areas (Special Management Area); 1998 Parks (National Park, Regional/State Park); 1998 Reserves (Special Management Area, Wildlife Refuge, National Park, Regional/State Park), and 1998 Special Management Areas (Special Management Area). Digital boundaries for artificial reefs, parks, and wildlife refuges that were not available in the HI Statewide GIS Program data layers were digitized directly off of NOAA nautical charts and USGS topographic quadrangles. The NOAA Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary provided the 1999 digital boundary used in this data layer (socioeconomic type: Marine Sanctuary). NMFS Designated Critical Habitat maps were used as a guide for delineating Hawaiian monk seal critical habitat (socioeconomic type: Designated Critical Habitat) in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands. Resource experts confirmed the accuracy of these management boundaries during on-site reviews. Additional information was gathered from hardcopy sources and compiled onto the USGS topographic quads, along with information gathered during interviews with resource experts. These data were then digitized and merged with the existing digital data layers. Following the data compilation phase, a second set of interviews was conducted with resource experts, and edits were made based on their recommendations.
