Item Identification

Title: Sensitivity of Coastal Environments and Wildlife to Spilled Oil: Puget Sound and Strait of Juan de Fuca, Washington: SOCECON (Socioeconomic Resource Points and Lines)
Short Name: WA_Puget_Sound_socecon
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2006-07
Abstract:

This data set contains points that represent the following sensitive human-use socioeconomic sites in Puget Sound and the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Washington: access locations, airports, aquaculture sites, archaeological sites, artificial reefs, beaches, boat ramps, U.S. Coast Guard stations, dive sites, spill response equipment storage sites, ferry terminals, hatcheries, hazardous waste sites, locks and dams, marinas, and parks. Also included are lines that represent the international boundary, bridges, and ferry routes. 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 MGT (Management Area Polygons) data layer, part of the larger Puget Sound and the 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, SOCECON) 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 (SOCECON = 10), 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 expert knowledge and available hardcopy reports and digital data on socioeconomic resources. These data do not necessarily represent all human-use sites in Puget Sound and Strait of Juan de Fuca, Washington. See also the MGT (Management Area Polygons) data layer, part of the larger Puget Sound and Strait of Juan de Fuca ESI database, 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 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: 605764
Description:

ACCESS LOCATIONS: Three sources of data were used to depict locations where the shoreline can be accessed by foot or by vehicle: (1) Washington State Department of Ecology BEACH database (Ecology), (2) Lummi Indian Business Council, and (3) a local resource manager. From Ecology's BEACH database, we extracted points depicting access locations. Approximately 79% of these points were repositioned to ensure that the locations more closely matched their actual position on land. The positions used in this database were identified using the HYDRO layer and 1-meter black-and-white digital orthophotographs. Not all access points identified in the BEACH database were included. Access points provided by the Lummi Indian Business Council were repositioned to fall within the land portion of the HYDRO layer. Four additional access points were provided by a local resource expert. These points were collected on, and digitized off of, hardcopy base maps with a scale of 1:24,000. AIRPORTS: Digital points representing non-military airports were provided by Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT). AQUACULTURE SITES: Digital points representing aquaculture sites (net pens) were acquired from the StreamNet website. ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITES: Local resource managers provided locations of archaeological sites on hardcopy 1:24,000 scale base maps. These data were digitized off of the hardcopy maps to produce point features. ARTIFICIAL REEFS: Geographic coordinates for artificial reefs were provided by Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife via personal communication. The latitude and longitude coordinates were used to generate digital point features. BEACHES: Three sources of data were used to depict locations of recreational beaches: (1) Washington State Department of Ecology BEACH database (Ecology), (2) Lummi Indian Business Council, (3) local resource experts. Approximately 88% of points included from Ecology's BEACH database were repositioned to ensure that each location more closely matched its actual position on land. The positions used in this database were identified using the HYDRO layer and 1-meter black-and-white digital orthophotographs. Not all beaches identified in the BEACH database were included. Beach points provided by the Lummi Indian Business Council were repositioned to fall within the land portion of the HYDRO layer. Four additional beach points were collected from local resource experts using hardcopy base maps with a scale of 1:24,000. These points were digitized off of the hardcopy maps. BOAT RAMPS: Four sources of data were used to depict locations of boat ramps: (1) Washington State Interagency Committee for Outdoor Recreation (IAC), (2) Washington State Department of Ecology BEACH database (Ecology), (3) Lummi Indian Business Council, and (4) local resource experts. Digital points provided by the IAC and Ecology's BEACH database were repositioned to ensure that each location more closely matched its actual position on land. The positions used in this database were identified using the HYDRO layer and 1-meter black-and-white digital orthophotographs. Not all boat ramps identified in both datasets were included. Digital points provided by Lummi Indian Business Council were repositioned to fall within the land portion of the HYDRO layer, where necessary. Additional boat ramp points were provided by local resource experts using hardcopy base maps with a scale of 1:24,000. These points were digitized off of the hardcopy maps. BRIDGES: Digital lines were provided by Washington State Department of Transportation. Due to cartographic limitations, not all bridges identified in the original dataset were included.

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

Process Step 2

CC ID: 605765
Description:

COAST GUARD STATIONS: Digital points representing U.S. Coast Guard stations were provided by the Portland Sector of the U.S. Coast Guard. DIVING SITES: Geographic coordinates for diving sites were collected from three locally well-known diving information websites. The latitude and longitude coordinates were used to generate digital point features. Many of the points represent land-based dive site entry locations. EQUIPMENT: Two sources of digital data points were used to depict locations of storage for, or availability of, spill response equipment: (1) Regional Response Team Northwest Area Committee and (2) Lummi Indian Business Council. Additional boat ramp points were provided by a local resource expert using hardcopy base maps with a scale of 1:24,000. FERRY ROUTES: Digital lines representing paths of ferry travel were provided by Washington State Department of Transportation. FERRY TERMINALS: Digital points representing ferry docking areas/terminals were provided by Washington State Department of Transportation and Washington State Department of Ecology (BEACH database). HATCHERIES: Two sources of digital data points were used to depict locations of hatcheries: (1) StreamNet website and (2) Lummi Indian Business Council. HAZARDOUS WASTE: Digital points representing Federal (Superfund) Cleanup Sites (FCS) were provided by Washington State Department of Ecology. All spatial duplicates were removed. INTERNATIONAL BOUNDARY: The line that marks the boundary between the United States (Washington) and Canada (British Columbia) was provided by Washington Department of Natural Resources. LOCKS AND DAMS: Digital points representing locks and/or dams were provided by the StreamNet website. Only those dams associated with streams were included. LOG STORAGE: Local resource managers provided locations of log storage sites on hardcopy 1:24,000 scale base maps. These data were digitized off of the hardcopy maps to produce point features. MARINAS: Four sources of data were used to depict locations of marinas: (1) Washington State Interagency Committee for Outdoor Recreation (IAC), (2) Washington State Department of Ecology BEACH database (Ecology), (3) Lummi Indian Business Council, and (4) a local resource expert. Digital points provided by the IAC and Ecology's BEACH database were repositioned to ensure that each location more closely matched its actual position on land. The positions used in this database were identified using the HYDRO layer and 1-meter black-and-white digital orthophotographs. Not all marinas identified in both datasets were included. Digital points provided by Lummi Indian Business Council were repositioned to fall within the land portion of the HYDRO layer, where necessary. These points were digitized off of the hardcopy maps. PARKS: Digital points representing parks were provided by Washington State Department of Ecology (BEACH database).

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

Process Step 3

CC ID: 605766
Description:

The above digital and/or hardcopy sources were compiled by the project biologist to create the SOCECON 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 4

CC ID: 605767
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 SOCECON data layer are made based on the recommendations of the resource experts, and final hardcopy maps and digital data are created.
