Title: Sensitivity of Coastal Environments and Wildlife to Spilled Oil: Puget Sound and Strait of Juan de Fuca, Washington: MGT (Management Area Polygons)
Short Name: WA_Puget_Sound_mgt
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2006-07
Abstract:

This data set contains polygons that represent the following sensitive human-use management areas in Puget Sound and the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Washington: aquaculture sites, commercial fishing areas, Indian reservations, marine sanctuaries, Nature Conservancy areas, national parks, recreational fishing areas, state parks, subsistence areas, wildlife refuges, and other 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 Puget Sound and Strait of Juan de Fuca, Washington. 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 and Lines) data layer, part of the larger Puget Sound and Strait of Juan de Fuca 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 data 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 Puget Sound and Strait of Juan de Fuca, the number is 79). ID is a unique combination of the atlas number (79), 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 a Geodatabase; ARC export, MOSS, and Shape files; and MARPLOT map folders. An ArcMap .mxd file, an ArcView 3.x ESI project, and an 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 9.1) and SQL SERVER(r) (version 2000). The hardware configuration is PC's with Windows Operating System (2000/XP/2003).The Spatial_Data_Organization_Information section refers only to the source files in the ARC export format. The following files are included in the data set: birds.e00, esi.e00, fish.e00, fishl.e00, habitatl.e00, habitats.e00, hydro.e00, index.e00, invert.e00, m_mampt.e00, mgt.e00, nests.e00, socecon.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, 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:

Spatial components for the human-use data layers can come from expert interviews, hardcopy, or digital sources. Most of the spatial components of the human-use data layers are developed from pre-existing digital or hardcopy sources and reflect the positional accuracy of these original data. Some of the spatial components of the human-use data layers are compiled on hardcopy base maps with a scale of 1:24,000. See the Lineage and Process_Description sections for more information on the original data source and how these data were integrated or manipulated to create the final data set.

Completeness Report:

These data represent a synthesis of digital boundaries for management areas. See also the SOCECON (Socioeconomic Resource Points and Lines) data layer, part of the larger Puget Sound and Strait of Juan de Fuca, Washington ESI database, for additional human-use information. These data do not necessarily represent all management areas in Puget Sound and Strait of Juan de Fuca.

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 nodes, etc.), and SQL SERVER(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: 605724
Description:

Aquaculture: Digital polygons representing aquaculture facilities were provided by Washington State Department of Health (WDOH) and Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW). WDOH's growing areas were included where the class was defined as "approved" or "conditional." Cultured mussels from WDFW's Marine Resource Database were also included as aquaculture sites. In order to depict the aquaculture sites as water-bound polygons, they were clipped with the water portion of the HYDRO layer. Any resulting land-based aquaculture sliver polygons were removed from the MGT layer. Where the polygons appeared to follow the shoreline but fell short, they were extended to meet the shoreline. Commercial and Recreational Fishing: Digital polygons representing commercial fishing and recreational fishing areas were provided by Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife's (WDFW) Marine Resource Database. The following layers were included as commercial and recreational fishing areas: demersal, reef, and pelagic (where demersal, reef and pelagic field = 1, respectively). The salmoncm features were included as commercial fishing areas where the "intense" and "everyone" field = 1. The salmonsp features were included as recreational fishing areas where the "sportsalmo" field = 1. In order to depict the commercial fishing and recreational fishing sites as water-bound polygons, they were clipped with the water portion of the HYDRO layer. Any resulting land-based sliver polygons were removed from the MGT layer. Where the polygons appeared the follow the shoreline but fell short, they were extended to meet the shoreline. Indian Reservations: Digital polygons representing Indian reservation boundaries were provided by the following groups: Jamestown S'klallam Tribe, Lummi Indian Business Council, Makah Tribe, Washington State Department of Ecology (WDOE), and Washington Department of Natural Resources (WDNR). Only those reservation boundaries from WDOE and WDNR that were not already included from the tribal groups were included. Management Areas: Digital polygons representing marine managed areas were provided by NOAA's Marine Protected Area (MPA) Center. Additional marine preservation areas were provided by Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife's (WDFW) Marine Resource Database. Marine Sanctuaries: Digital polygons representing National Estuarine Research Reserve System boundaries were provided by NOAA's MPA Center. The Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary (OCNMS) boundary was provided by OCNMS. Nature Conservancy Areas: Digital polygons representing lands managed by The Nature Conservancy were provided by the Washington Chapter of The Nature Conservancy. National Parks: The Olympic National Park boundary was provided by Olympic National Forest as a digital polygon feature. The boundaries of National Historic Parks and Reserves in the study area were provided by Washington Department of Transportation. State Parks: Digital polygons representing state parks were provided by Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission. Subsistence: Digital polygons representing subsistence areas were gathered from the salmoncm layer provided by WDFW. Only those polygons where the field "treaty" = 1 were included. Wildlife Refuges: Digital polygons representing wildlife refuge boundaries were provided by the Makah Tribe and NOAA's MPA Center.

Process Step 2

CC ID: 605725
Description:

The above digital and/or hardcopy sources were compiled by the project biologist to create the MGT data layer. Depending on the type of source data, three general approaches are used for compiling the data layer: (1) information gathered during initial interviews and from hardcopy sources are compiled onto U.S. Geological Survey 1:24,000 topographic quadrangles and digitized; (2) hardcopy maps are digitized at their source scale; (3) digital data layers are evaluated and used "as is" or integrated with the hardcopy data sources. See the Lineage section for additional information on the type of source data for this data layer.

Process Date/Time: 2006-03-01 00:00:00

Process Step 3

CC ID: 605726
Description:

The compiled ESI, biology, and human-use data are plotted onto hardcopy draft maps. Following the delivery of draft maps to the participating resource experts, a second set of interviews is conducted to review the maps. If necessary, edits to the MGT data layer are made based on the recommendations of the resource experts, and final hardcopy maps and digital data are created.
