Title: Distribution of Georgia Oyster Reefs
Short Name: GA_OysterReefs
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2015-12-30
Abstract:

The feature class in this ESRI Geodatabase contains polygons representing oyster reefs along the Georgia coastal waterways from Chatham County south to Glynn County. A pilot project was completed for certain coastal regions in 2013, and the remaining regions in the project area were completed in 2015. Oyster polygons were collected by heads-up digitization using 4-band, 6" resolution DMC digital aerial imagery as the source imagery. The source imagery was collected during the period from November 2012 to February 2013. This mapping effort was performed by Quantum Spatial under contract to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. The minimum mapping unit is 5 square meters, though collecting features under that was at the discretion of the contractor.
