Title: North Carolina 2016 ESI RESOURCE MANAGEMENT Polygons, Points
Short Name: North Carolina 2016 ESI RESOURCE MANAGEMENT Polygons, Points
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2016-11
Abstract:

This data set contains vector polygons depicting locations for critical habitats and essential habitats, and vector points depicting locations for artificial reefs, recreational fishing, repeated measurement sites, water intakes, and fishery areas in North Carolina. Location-specific type and source information are stored in associated data tables (described below) designed to be used in conjunction with this spatial data layer.

This data set is a portion of the ESI data for North Carolina. 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 PARKS/MANAGED AREAS (POINTS and POLYGONS), NAVIGATION/MARINE (POINTS and POLYGONS), POLITICAL/JURISDICTIONAL (LINES and POLYGONS), RESOURCE MANAGEMENT (POINTS and POLYGONS), and NAT_HAZARD (POLYGONS) data layers for additional human-use information.

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.

Data Set Information

Data Set Scope Code: Data Set
Data Set Type: GIS Files
Maintenance Frequency: As Needed
Maintenance Note:

Data content is considered static once published. However, if issues with the Geodatabase linkages or table contents are identified, the Geodatabase and/or the associated Map Document may be updated. Assure most current data is being used by downloading from https://response.restoration.noaa.gov/esi_download and/or comparing modification dates provided at this site.

Data Presentation Form: Map (digital)
Entity Attribute Overview:

In addition to the geographic data layers, two associated data tables, SOC_DAT and SOURCES, are used to store the complex socioeconomic data in the ESI data structure. The geographic data layers containing socioeconomic data resource information (in this case, RESOURCE_POLY and RESOURCE_POINTS) are linked to the Socioeconomic Resources table (SOC_DAT) using HUNUM. HUNUM is a unique reference number concatenated with the atlas number (for North Carolina, the number is 335). SOC_DAT and the associated data tables are described in detail in this document. 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.

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

Technical Environment

Description:

The software package used to develop the atlas is Environmental Systems Research Institute's ArcGIS for Desktop 10.2(R). The hardware configuration is PCs with Windows Operating System 7.

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.

Horizontal Positional Accuracy:

Spatial components for the human-use data layers can come from expert interviews and digital sources. Most of the spatial components of the human-use data layers are developed from pre-existing digital sources and reflect the positional accuracy of these original data. Some of the spatial components of the human-use data layers are compiled on digital base maps with a scale of 1:24,000 or larger. See the Lineage and Process_Description sections for more information on the original source data and how these data were integrated or manipulated to create the final data set.

Completeness Report:

These data represent a synthesis of multiple sources of data (e.g. expert knowledge, digital data, hardcopy documents and maps) on socioeconomic resources. Polygon data should not be considered "legal boundaries" and they do not necessarily represent all managed areas in the North Carolina region.

For additional human-use information, see other feature class themes within the SOCECON Directory, including PARKS/MANAGED AREAS (POINTS and POLYGONS), NAVIGATION/MARINE (POINTS and POLYGONS), POLITICAL/JURISDICTIONAL (LINES and POLYGONS), RESOURCE MANAGEMENT (POINTS and POLYGONS), and NAT_HAZARD (POLYGONS).

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 several consistency checks, and processed into the final delivery format.

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 795876
Description:

The main sources of data used to depict human-use resources for this data layer were publicly-available digital data supplemented with expert knowledge.

The RESOURCE MANAGEMENT polygons include Designated Critical Habitats mapped for the piping plover, North Atlantic right whale, and loggerhead sea turtle. Data were provided by the USFWS and NOAA NMFS. Also mapped as polygons are Habitat Areas of Particular Concern (HAPCs) and/or Essential Fish Habitat (EFH) necessary to support the key life stages of snapper/grouper, dolphin/wahoo, coastal migratory pelagic, shrimp, spiny lobster and coral. These boundaries were provided as part of a collaborative effort of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Research Institute, and the South Atlantic Fisheries Management Council.

Mapped as points, Artificial reef data were provided by N.C. Division of Natural Resources (NCDNR). Fishery area locations represent oyster sanctuaries in which fishing methods are regulated. Locational information was obtained from the N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries (NCDMF). Locations of recreational fishing piers were mapped using information found at Fishing-NC.com and from the N.C. Geographical Response Plan. Repeated measurement sites represent NOAA national data buoy locations (DB), NOAA Mussel Watch monitoring sites (MWS) and NOAA National Water Level Observation Network (NWLON). Locations of water intakes were obtained from the N.C. Department of Environmental and Natural Resources (NCDENR) \x96 Division of Water Quality.
