Title: Southwest Peninsular Florida 2016 ESI RESOURCE MANAGEMENT Polygons, Points
Short Name: Southwest Peninsular Florida 2016 ESI RESOURCE MANAGEMENT Polygons, Points
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2017-02
Abstract:

This data set contains vector polygons representing critical habitats, and vector points representing aquaculture, artificial reefs, recreational fishing, and water intake sites in Southwest Peninsular Florida. Location specific type and source information are stored in relational data tables (described below) designed to be used in conjunction with this spatial data layer. 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.

This data set comprises a portion of the ESI data for Southwest Peninsular Florida. The entirety of the ESI Human-Use data layers consists of: PARKS-MANAGED AREAS Polygons; NAVIGATION-MARINE Points; POLITICAL-JURISDICTIONAL Polygons, Lines, Points; RESOURCE MANAGEMENT Polygons, Points; SOCECON Polygons, Lines, Points; and NATURAL HAZARD Polygons.

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 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 layer containing socioeconomic data resource information (in this case, MANAGED_POLYS) is linked to the Socioeconomic Resources table (SOC_DAT) using HUNUM. HUNUM is a unique reference number concatenated with the atlas number (for SW Peninsular Florida, the number is 220). 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.

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.

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 digital data for critical habitat, aquaculture, artificial reef, recreational fishing, and water intake features. Polygon data should not be interpreted as "legal boundaries" and this content doesn't necessarily represent all features of the aforementioned types withing the boundaries of the Southwest Peninsular Florida region.

The entirety of the ESI Human-Use data layers consists of: PARKS-MANAGED AREAS Polygons; NAVIGATION-MARINE Points; POLITICAL-JURISDICTIONAL Polygons, Lines, Points; RESOURCE MANAGEMENT Polygons, Points; SOCECON Polygons, Lines, Points; and NATURAL 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: 797956
Description:

The RESOURCE_POINT features (aquaculture, artificial reefs, recreational fishing, and water intakes) were selected from the complete dataset on FWRIs enterprise ArcSDE database that fell within the area of interest for the Southwest Florida ESI Atlas. Renee Duffey provided attribute updates to several water intake features from work on the geographic response plan maps in this area. After the desired selection was exported to a working geodatabase, two fields were added to meet the new ESI schema. First the TYPE field was added as a text field with 4 characters and then the SOCVAL field was added as text with 6 characters. The TYPE field was entered for all features based upon the standard human-use ESI digital format. Next the SOCVAL field was calculated by concatenating the TYPE field and a sequential numbering scheme. Other data fields were turned off that did not match the ESI format and the data were imported into the final ESI feature dataset based upon the proper ESI Human-Use category (i.e. MANAGED, NAT_HAZARD, NAV_MARINE, POLITICAL, RESOURCE, SOCECON).

The above digital and/or hardcopy sources were compiled by the project biologist to create the RESOURCE_POINT data layer. Depending on the type of source data, three general approaches are used for compiling the data layer: 1) information gathered during initial interviews and from hardcopy sources are compiled onto U.S. Geological Survey 1:24,000 topographic quadrangles and digitized; 2) hardcopy maps are digitized at their source scale; 3) digital data layers are evaluated and used "as is" or integrated with the hardcopy data sources. 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 RESOURCE_POINT data layer are made based on the recommendations of the resource experts, and final hardcopy maps and digital data are created.
