Publication Date: 2016-02-10
Abstract:

This layer is intended for querying purposes only for select federal statutes featured in MarineCadastre.gov. Downloads to the individual statutes can be found within the distribution section of this metadata record. When investigating geo-regulatory boundaries near the boundary edges, users should consult the most up to date applicable jurisdictional boundaries available on MarineCadastre.gov. These geo-regulatory boundaries have not been updated in more than 13 years.

Purpose:

To support coastal and ocean planning and other activities pursuant to the Energy Policy Act, Coastal Zone Management Act, Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, National Environmental Policy Act, Rivers and Harbors Act and the Submerged Lands Act.

Notes:

11000

Supplemental Information:

Areas are known to be incomplete and outdated. Areas where SLA or other jurisdictional boundaries have changed after 2001 or were not available may not be exact.

Activity Log 3

CC ID: 755528
Activity Date/Time: 2018-02-08
Description:

Partial upload of Positional Accuracy fields only.

Data Quality

Accuracy:

The attributes in this dataset are believed to be accurate.

Horizontal Positional Accuracy:

Maximum scale of intended use is 1:80,000.

Completeness Report:

Spatial and attribute properties are believed to be complete. Geometric thresholds from original data are preserved. No tests have been completed for exhaustiveness. Areas are known to be incomplete and outdated. Areas where SLA or other jurisdictional boundaries have changed after 2001 or were not available may not be exact. This is a database view created using the FederalGeoregulations (FG Table) and FederalGeoregulationsLookup (FG Lookup) tables and linking these to the FederalGeoregulationsFootprint (FG Footprint) feature class. This assigns the various laws found in the lookup table with the spatial footprint.

Conceptual Consistency:

Areas are known to be incomplete and outdated. Areas where SLA or other jurisdictional boundaries have changed after 2001 or were not available may not be exact.

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 755534
Description:

Create database view using the FederalGeoregulations (FG Table) and FederalGeoregulationsLookup (FG Lookup) tables and linking these to the FederalGeoregulationsFootprint (FG Footprint) feature class. This assigns the various laws found in the lookup table with the spatial footprint.

Process Step 2

CC ID: 755535
Description:

1. Took copy of FederalGeoregulationsFootprint (FG Footprint) feature class from SDE.

2. Ran multipart to singlepart tool.

3. Ran generalize tool once, since features are not visible and this layer is to be used for identification purposes only. Also determined this improved performance and only changed the feature geometry slightly.

4. Repaired Geometry.

5. Ensured web Mercator projection.

6. Edited metadata to account for these new processing steps.

7. Replaced FederalGeoregulationsFootprint (FG Footprint) feature class from SDE. (Database view automatically updated.)

8. Created map and published map service.
