Title: Delaware / New Jersey / Pennsylvania 2014 ESI BIRDS Polygons and NESTS Points
Short Name: Delaware Bay 2014 ESI BIRDS Polygons and NESTS Points
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2014-03
Abstract:

These data sets contains sensitive biological resource data for alcids, diving birds, gulls, terns, passerines, pelagic birds, raptors, shorebirds, wading birds, and waterfowl in Delaware Bay and nearby coastal areas of Delaware, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. Vector polygons in the BIRDS data set represent bird nesting, migratory staging, and wintering sites. Vector points in the NESTS data set represent raptor and wading bird nests. Species specific abundance, seasonality, status, life history, and source information are stored in relational data tables (described below) designed to be used in conjunction with this spatial data layer. This data set comprises a portion of the ESI data for Delaware/New Jersey/Pennsylvania. 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.

Purpose:

The ESI data were collected, mapped, and digitized to provide 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.

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:

The primary attribute tables associated with the ESI biology data are BIOFILE, SOURCES, and BREED_DT. The geographic data layer containing biological resource information (in this case, BIRDS) is linked to the BIOFILE using the RARNUM field. There is a many-to-many relationship from the data layer to the BIOFILE, as an RARNUM may be repeated in several geographic features. Likewise, in the BIOFILE, the same RARNUM may appear in multiple records, representing a unique combination of species found in that region. To be represented by the same RARNUM, these species groups must also share the same seasonality, concentration, mapping qualifier, and source information.

The items in the BIOFILE are ELEMENT, SUBELEMENT, NAME, GEN_SPEC, S, F, STATE, S_DATE, F_DATE, GRANK, GRANKDATE, MAPPING_QUALIFIER, CONC, JAN, FEB, MAR, APR, MAY, JUN, JUL, AUG, SEP, OCT, NOV, DEC, BREED1, BREED2, BREED3, BREED4, BREED5, RARNUM, G_SOURCE, S_SOURCE, and BREED. The G_SOURCE and S_SOURCE fields provide links to the SOURCES table, where object level source information is available. The BREED field is the link to the BREED_DT table, where searchable breed information is provided. The links to both of these tables are also many-to-many.

During the collection of the ESI data, six relational data tables are used to store the attribute data. These are the BIORES, BREED, SEASONAL, SOURCES, SPECIES, and STATUS tables. When we create new ESI data, we populate these tables to maintain the integrity of the data collected. Once completed, all information populating these tables is collapsed into the BIOFILE to ease data queries and general usability of the final product.

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, hardcopy 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 biological data layers can come from expert interviews, hardcopy, or digital sources. Some of the spatial components of the biological data layers may have been developed using regional experts who estimate concentration areas. It is difficult to estimate the positional accuracy of such data, except to state that they are compiled on hardcopy base maps with a scale of 1:45,000. Some of the spatial components of the biological data sets are developed from pre-existing digital or hardcopy sources and reflect the positional accuracy of these original data. Note that biological resource data by their very nature are considered "fuzzy", and this should be understood when considering the positional accuracy of vector digital objects representing these resources. 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.

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.

Lineage

Lineage Statement:

For each species, the mapping extent was dependent upon information availability and location of mapped coastal habitats and shorelines. Three main sources of data were used to depict bird distribution and seasonality for this data layer: 1) personal interviews with resource experts from: Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC), NJ Department of Environmental Protection Division of Fish and Wildlife (NJDEP F&W), NJDEP F&W Endangered and Nongame Species Program (ENSP), U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), and Pennsylvania Game Commission (PGC); 2) numerous published and unpublished reports; and 3) digital/tabular data sets provided by: DNREC, NJDEP F&W, NJDEP ENSP, USFWS, USGS, and PGC.

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 807981
Description:

DE, NJ, and PA waterfowl: Waterfowl surveys were conducted in 11 zones in DE, 29 zones in NJ, and 2 zones in PA from Oct.-Jan., ranging from 1980-2012 (dependent on state). In all three states, surveys provided simple counts of all species within the survey zones. A "wetlands and inland water bodies" habitat class was created by selecting ESI 10A, -B, -C, and -D within the survey zones and buffering them by 10 m before merging them with all adjacent inland water bodies. The resulting polygons were then edited to eliminate any gaps or isolated polygons less than 10,000 m2. The second habitat class was defined as "large open water bodies". This habitat type includes the inland bays and sounds of DE and NJ as well as portions of the Delaware River. Concentrations were calculated as the maximum value of summed points within a month across all years surveyed and generalized to categorical bins of 10s, 100s, 1,000s, etc. Survey zones were aggregated if they were geographically adjacent and had similar maximum counts and species assemblages.

Process Step 2

CC ID: 807982
Description:

Delaware Bay and Atlantic Ocean seabirds: Two data sets were used: 1) USFWS Atlantic Coast Wintering Sea Duck Survey (ACWSDS) and the USGS Atlantic Offshore Seabird Dataset Catalog (AOSDC). Based on expert advice, data was first grouped into nearshore (1 nautical mile from shore) and offshore (1-12 nm) polygons. Data was further subdivided between DE and NJ coasts, and between the Delaware Bay and open ocean waters. Data from the ACWSDS were used for the majority of the ESI study area, as the data had better coverage, replication, and consistency. The AOSDC data were only incorporated along the Delaware River between the Delaware Memorial Bridge and Nantuxent Point, NJ/Bombay Hook, DE. The majority of surveys for the ACWSDS were flown from Oct.-Mar. along predetermined latitudinal transects spaced 5 nm apart. Concentrations of seabird species for a given region were calculated as the maximum value of summed points within a survey period across all years surveyed.

Process Step 3

CC ID: 807983
Description:

Delaware Element Occurrence Data: Rare and endangered species of birds were mapped in part using element occurrence data provided by DNREC. Polygons with diameters greater than 100 m were mapped as is and all other polygons were mapped after applying a polygonal buffer and a randomized geographic shift.

Email Address: orr.esi@noaa.gov

Process Step 4

CC ID: 807984
Description:

Delaware Shorebirds: DNREC provided polygonal data representing red knot concentration areas during spring migration, beach nesting bird locations, and impoundments. Please note that names were obscured for all DE species that are listed DE State endangered and/or federally threatened to generic names such as "endangered shorebird". DNREC also provided shorebird flock count data along Delaware Bay beaches. Data from the last 10 years (2003-2013) was summarized for inclusion in the atlas and was generalized to categorical bins of 10s, 100s, 1,000s, etc., representing the max counts for each species within each site over the survey period.

Email Address: orr.esi@noaa.gov

Process Step 5

CC ID: 807985
Description:

Delaware Marshbirds and Passerines: DNREC provided Delaware Breeding Bird Atlas 2008-2012 data for secretive marsh birds and marsh-breeding passerines. In each BBA quad in which a species was indicated as "present", that species was mapped to all appropriate ESI habitats.

Email Address: orr.esi@noaa.gov

Process Step 6

CC ID: 807986
Description:

Delaware NWR birds: Bombay Hook and Prime Hook NWRs provided Integrated Waterbird Management and Monitoring (IWMM) survey data, Saltmarsh Habitat and Avian Research Program (SHARP) survey data, and Saltmarsh Integrity (SMI) survey data. The IWMM data was limited to discrete survey areas within each refuge. Data from 2010-2013 was summarized for inclusion in the atlas. Concentrations were generalized to categorical bins of 10s, 100s, 1,000s, etc., representing high counts for each species within each IWMM site over the survey period. SHARP and SMI surveys covered refuge habitat more broadly, so they were used to create species lists that covered the remaining extent of these refuges.

Process Step 7

CC ID: 807987
Description:

New Jersey ENSP Shorebirds: Polygonal buffers were provided by NJ ENSP for spring shorebird concentration areas and red knot "status assessments". NJ ENSP provided polygonal data on Colonial Waterbird nesting areas. Colonial waterbirds utilize many habitats for breeding, including salt marshes and salt marsh islands, barrier islands and beaches, dredge spoil islands, and natural sand shoals, particularly behind the barrier islands and in the major bay systems in coastal NJ.

Process Step 8

CC ID: 807988
Description:

New Jersey ENSP Raptors: A buffer, as specified by the data provider, was applied to all raptor nests that were delivered to RPI as points. Raptor nests that were delivered to RPI as polygons (buffer was applied by NJ ENSP around nest site prior to data delivery) were portrayed "as is".

Process Step 9

CC ID: 807989
Description:

New Jersey NWR birds: Supawna Meadows NWR provided marsh bird survey and saltmarsh sparrow survey data. Species, including: shorebirds, wading birds, raptors, gulls, terns, and other passerines were mapped to the entirety of the Supawna Meadows NWR and adjacent marshes. Pea Patch Island (DE) nesting wading birds survey data were also provided by Supawna Meadows NWR. Data from Edwin B. Forsythe NWR were compiled with data received from ENSP to capture the full suite and range of species mapped within the reserve boundaries.

Process Step 10

CC ID: 807990
Description:

Pennsylvania BBA birds: PGC provided data from the 2nd Pennsylvania Breeding Bird Atlas (2ndPBBA). The 2ndPBBA atlas contained data on all breeding birds and observance data of non-breeding birds. Breeding bird data records categorized as "Confirmed" or "Probable" were mapped in the appropriate habitat for each species within the 2nd BBA quad where each species was present. These records were listed with a nesting season in the ESI seasonality table. Observance data of non-nesters (categorized in the dataset as "Observed") were mapped in the ESI atlas when coordinates were included with the record. Nesting seasons were not included in the ESI seasonality table for these records.

Process Step 11

CC ID: 807991
Description:

NESTS Points: Two main sources of data were used to depict nests for the NESTS Points data layer: 1) personal interviews with resource experts from: Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC), U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge (NWR), and Pennsylvania Game Commission (PGC); and 2) digital/tabular data sets provided by DNREC and PGC. Peregrine falcon (PA state endangered) and bald eagle (PA state threatened) nest locations were provided by PGC. Osprey nest locations were provided by DNREC. Nest locations for bald eagles and black-crowned night-heron (DE SE) were provided by Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge (NWR). Nest points were mapped "as is" without further geoprocessing. The above digital and/or hardcopy sources were compiled by the project biologist to create the NESTS Points data layer.

Email Address: orr.esi@noaa.gov

Process Step 12

CC ID: 807992
Description:

Federally threatened (FT) and state listed endangered (SE) or threatened (ST) or rare (not listed) bird species for which common names were obscured in one or more states (DE and/or NJ), due to requests from data providers within those states, were renamed based on their federal or state listing status and ESI subelement: e.g., "endangered tern", "threatened shorebird", "rare passerine", etc. The above digital and/or hardcopy sources were compiled by the project biologist to create the BIRDS 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 1:45,000 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 BIRDS Polygons and NESTS Points data layers are made based on the recommendations of the resource experts, and final hardcopy maps and digital data are created.
