Item Identification

Title: Puerto Rico ESI/RSI: SOCECON (Socioeconomic Lines and Points)
Short Name: P_Rico_socecon
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2001-06
Abstract:

This data set comprises the Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) and Reach Sensitivity Index (RSI) data for Puerto Rico. ESI data characterize estuarine 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. Most rivers and streams can be readily subdivided into clear-cut segments, or reaches (RSI), that have very distinct and uniform characteristics within that reach of the stream. The definition of reach type is usually based on whatever the intended use of the reach classification might be. In this project, stream reaches are defined as those segments where similar spill-response modes and potential ecological and/or socioeconomic impacts from the spill are to be anticipated. However defined, the boundary of the reach is usually marked by an abrupt change in the morphology of the stream, a change commonly, but not always, brought about by an alteration in the stream's gradient. This data set contains point and line data for human-use resources.

Purpose:

The ESI and RSI 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.

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). The following files are included in the data set: benthic.e00, birds.e00, bio_lut.e00, biofile.e00, biores.e00, breed.e00, breed_dt.e00, esi.e00, fish.e00, fishl.e00, habitats.e00, hydro.e00, index.e00, invert.e00, invertl.e00, karst.e00, mgt.e00, m_mammal.e00, reptiles.e00, seasonal.e00, shelfbnd.e00, soc_dat.e00, soc_lut.e00, socecon.e00, sources.e00, species.e00, stations.e00, status.e00, t_mammal.e00, wetlands.e00.

Data Quality

Accuracy:

The attribute accuracy is estimated to be "good" given the years of ESI experience, the data input methodology, the quality control review sessions, and the digital logical consistency checks.

Horizontal Positional Accuracy:

The ESI data use USGS 1:20,000 and 1:30,000 topographic quadrangles as the basemap. It is estimated that the ESI shoreline classification has a minimum mapping unit of 50 feet.

Completeness Report:

Human-Use Resources: Several human-use, or socioeconomic, features are included in ESI/RSI atlases. Entity points and complete chains (arcs) are digitized into the data layer SOCECON and managed area polygonal data (GT-polygons) are stored in the MGT data layer. Both data sets are linked to the data table SOC_DAT using the SOC_LUT lookup table and the items HUNUM and ID. HUNUM is a unique reference number concatenated with the atlas number (for the Puerto Rico this is 66). ID is a unique combination of the atlas number (66), an element specific number (SOCECON = 10) and a unique record number. The TYPE item for entity points may contain the following values: Airport, A; Aquaculture, AQ; Artisanal/Commercial Fishing, CF; Boat Ramp, BR; Coast Guard, CG; Collection Point, CP; Dam, LD; Dive Site, DV; RSI High-Water Leakage Point; Marina, M; Recreational Beach, B; Recreational Fishing, RF; Subsistence, S; Water Intake, WI. The TYPE item for complete chains may contain the following values: ESI/RSI Break, ER; Roads/Bridges, R. The table SOC_DAT contains the human-use number (HUNUM), feature type (TYPE), name of the facility (NAME), owner/manager or contact person (CONTACT), telephone number (PHONE), geographic source (G_SOURCE), and attribute source (A_SOURCE). Detailed contact information is only included for select management features, where available. Source information is included for all features.

Conceptual Consistency:

The human-use resources were obtained in either digital format or in hardcopy format on 1:20,000 and 1:30,000 scale topographic quadrangles. Under this project, new digital data sources are imported, projected, checked for quality control, and integrated into the spatial data structure (for selected resources). The data are checked using both digital and on-screen procedures. To finalize the data checking process, each data layer is checked using a standardized form by two GIS personnel (a technician and the GIS manager), and each attribute database is checked using several programs that test the files for missing or duplicate data, rules for proper coding, GIS topological consistencies (such as dangles, unnecessary nodes, 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. 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 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. The section Spatial_Data_Organization_Information refers to the source files in ARC export format only.

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 604970
Description:

All the digital data were checked using both digital and on-screen procedures, plotted, checked by the biological expert, edited to remove any errors, and plotted for review by the regional specialists. The reviewed maps were updated on the computer, checked once again, and plotted at final map scale. A team of specialists reviewed the entire series of maps, checked all data, and made final edits. The data were merged to form the study-wide layers that are described in the document. The data merging included a final quality control check where topological consistency, rules for geography, and database to geography were checked and validated for all relationships.
