Title: Northwest Peninsular Florida 2016 ESIP (ESI Shoreline Types - Polygons)
Short Name: Northwest Peninsular Florida 2016 ESIP (ESI Shoreline Types - Polygons)
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2016
Abstract:

This data set contains vector polygons representing coastal habitats of Northwest Peninsula Florida, classified by their susceptibility to oiling. The Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) classification system, developed by NOAA, considers several natural and biological factors when ranking an intertidal range's sensitivity and persistence of oil impacts.

This data set is a portion of the ESI data for Florida. As a whole, the ESI data characterize the marine and coastal environments and wildlife by their sensitivity to spilled oil, and include information for three main components: shoreline habitats, sensitive biological resources, and human-use resources. See also the ESIL (ESI Shoreline Lines) data layer for additional information about shorelines and intertidal habitats.

Purpose:

The ESI data are intended to provide baseline 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. The ESI data may be appropriate for many other coastal management efforts, though the original intent should be kept in mind.

Entity Attribute Overview:

In addition to the geographic data layers, an associated data table, SOURCES, is used to store the source data information in the ESI data structure. The geographic data layer containing resource information (in this case, ESIP) is linked to the SOURCES table using SOURCE_ID. 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.

Although these data have been processed and used successfully on a computer system at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), no warranty, expressed or implied, is made by NOAA regarding the utility of the data on any other system, nor shall the act of distribution constitute any such warranty. NOAA warrants the delivery of this product in computer-readable format. If problems are encountered in downloading the ESI data or with file corruption, contact NOAA (see Distributor). These data represent a snapshot in time and temporal changes may have occurred. The data are not intended to include all biological or human-use resources present in an area; they focus on species and resources particularly sensitive to oiling. In the event of a spill, they should be used for a first assessment only. The data providers are the experts with regard to individual resources. They should be contacted to confirm if more current data exist or if in-depth information is needed about a particular resource.

Data can be accessed by downloading the zipped ArcGIS geodatabase from the Download URL (see Distribution Information). Questions can be directed to the ESI Program Manager (Point Of Contact).

Data Access Constraints:

None

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. Acknowledgement 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 habitat polygons in Northwest Peninsula Florida classified according to the Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) classification system. See also the ESIL (ESI Shoreline Lines) data layer for additional information about shorelines and intertidal habitats.

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: 591311
Description:

The intertidal shoreline habitats as well as inland wetland habitats were derived from the integration of the following digital data: the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) National Wetlands Inventory (NWI) dataset (1 Oct 2014); the SWFWMD Springs Coast Seagrass (2012) and Tarpon Springs to Boca Grande Seagrass (2014); the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation (FFWCC) Mangrove dataset (16 Mar 2012); and manual digitization at approximately 1:1,000 using the following ortho-rectified aerial imagery resources from the Florida Department of Revenue (2012-2014), Florida Department of Transportation (2013), SWFWMD Springs Coast Seagrass (2012) and Tarpon Springs to Boca Grande Seagrass (2014). See the Lineage section for additional information on the type of source data for this data layer.

To create the base ESIP data layer, the NWI vector dataset was used as a base in a file geodatabase feature class; other vector data sources were used only where the NWI was not complete or to help with cross-walking the NWI code to the ESI classification system. The vector source data for each ESIL feature were recorded in the [SOURCE_ID] field in the attribute table. The physiographic environment recorded in the [ENVIR] field was determined using the NWI dataset. The feature topology was checked for slivers and overlap before manual clean-up and classification of the polygons began. First, the NWI classifications were cross-walked to the ESI classification system. Next, manual digitization efforts consisted of reshaping polygon extents and correcting crosswalked ESI codes, as needed, at approximately 1:1,000 scale using the ortho-rectified aerial imagery (prioritized by currency, spectral resolution, and tidal coordination where available) which were recorded in the [ESI_SOURCE] field of the ESIP layer. For shoreline segments photo-interpreted as having an adjacent tidal flat that was not present in the source data, new tidal flat polygons were digitized. A minimum mapping unit (mmu) of 0.5 acres was used for polygonal features, although smaller polygons from the source data were permitted, such as intertidal oyster reefs. All wetland and tidal flat polygons adjacent to the ESIL shoreline were snapped to ESIL shoreline segments using a series of both automated and manual steps. After the initial habitat classification, the data were checked for logical consistency errors and re-checked for topology errors. The ESI, biology, and human-use data were compiled into the standard ESI digital data format. A QA/QC period for NOAA and participating resource experts was conducted and, as needed, edits to the ESIP data layer were made based on the recommendations of the experts, and final hardcopy maps and digital data were created.
