Item Identification

Title: Southwest Florida 2016 ESIP (Environmental Sensitivity Index Shoreline Types - Polygons)
Short Name: Southwest Florida 2016 ESI Polygons
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2016
Abstract:

This data set contains vector polygons representing the shoreline and coastal habitats of Southwest Florida classified according to the Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) classification system. This data set comprises a portion of the ESI data for Southwest Florida. 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 ESIL data layer, part of the larger Southwest Florida ESI database, for additional ESI 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 Use Constraints:

DO NOT USE MAPS FOR NAVIGATIONAL PURPOSES.

Management boundaries are not to be considered legal boundaries. Edges may have been altered for cartographic processes. 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.

Besides the above warnings, there are no use constraints on these data.

Acknowledgment of the originators, publishers, contributors, and sources listed would be appreciated in products derived from these data.

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, 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.

Completeness Report:

These data represent coastal shorelines and habitats classified according to the Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) classification system. See also the ESIL data layer, part of the larger Southwest Florida ESI database, for additional ESI 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, and SQL SERVER(R) to ArcGIS(R) consistencies. A final review is made by the GIS manager, before the final Geodatabase and metadata are created. After the data are delivered to NOAA, they are again subjected to a several consistency checks, and processed into the final delivery format.

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 577670
Description:

The shoreline and classifications were fully updated using the sources and methods described below. The West Peninsula Florida Vol. 2 shoreline was derived from the integration of the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) Land Cover and Land Use dataset (2004-2005 and 2008-2009); the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) Land Cover and Land Use dataset (2008-2009); the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission shoreline dataset (1999-2009); and manual digitization at 1:4,000 from 2010-2011 BING aerial and 2010-2014 GOOGLE EARTH aerial imagery. The most recent and/or highest quality shoreline was utilized where available. The intertidal shoreline habitats were classified based on 2012 low-altitude oblique aerial photography from BING Pictometry; 2010-2011 BING aerial imagery; 2010-2014 GOOGLE EARTH aerial imagery; and imagery obtained via a geographic web server from the Marine Resource Geographic Information System and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC). Shoreline features of 10 meters or greater in length were classified. In addition, land use and land cover polygon datasets originally created by the South Florida Water Management District and the Southwest Florida Water Management District were modified and updated to be used in conjunction with the ESI shoreline. Where necessary, multiple types were described for each shoreline segment.

The above digital and/or hardcopy sources were compiled to create the ESIP data layer. Depending on the type of source data, three general approaches are used for compiling the data layer: 1) hardcopy maps are digitized at their source scale; 2) digital data layers are evaluated and used "as is" or integrated with the hardcopy data sources; and 3) overflight changes are digitized from the scanned and registered hardcopy field maps or aerial photography. After the initial shoreline classification, these data are edgematched and checked for logical consistency errors. Review maps are plotted at 1:24,000 scale for verification of polygonal and linear attributes. See the Lineage section for additional information on the type of source data for this data layer. The ESI, biology, and human-use data are compiled into the standard ESI digital data format. A second set of interviews with participating resource experts are conducted to review the compiled data. If necessary, edits to the ESIP data layer are made based on the recommendations of the resource experts, and final hardcopy maps and digital data are created.
