Item Identification

Title: NOAA Charted Submarine Cables
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2018-05-01
Abstract:

These data depict the occurrence of submarine cables in and around U.S. navigable waters. The geographic extent of these data is greater than the "NASCA Submarine Cables" dataset. The purpose of these data products are to support coastal planning at the regional and national scale. These data are derived from 2017 NOAA Raster Navigational Charts (RNCs).

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.

Supplemental Information:

The native coordinate system for this layer is NAD 1983 (ESPG: 4269). Please note: all MarineCadastre.gov data served by the NOAA Office for Coastal Management and hosted through Esri REST services are in the WGS 1984 Web Mercator Auxiliary Sphere (EPSG: 3857) projection.

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, although attribute information has been simplified. Geometric thresholds from original data are preserved. No tests have been completed for exhaustiveness.

Conceptual Consistency:

These data are believed to be logically consistent. Geometry is topologically clean.

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 868706
Description:

• In ArcMap, add image service from https://seamlessrnc.nauticalcharts.noaa.gov/arcgis/rest/services/RNC and local copy of the Raster Charts footprints • Heads up digitize all visible submarine cables visible on charts • Spatial Join cables data with footprint data to add attribute info • Delete all superfluous fields • Check geometry and project data into WGS 1984 Auxiliary Sphere
