Attribute Summary

Rubric Score Primary Key? Name Type Description
N/A
OBJECTID n/a Internal feature number.; Source: Esri
N/A
Name n/a The name of the unit.; Source: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
N/A
Shape_Area n/a Area of feature in internal units squared.; Source: ESRI
N/A
Shore_Mile n/a The approximate length of shoreline within a unit in miles. The Service digitized a shoreline boundary to artificially close off the units along the seaward shoreline. This shoreline boundary generally follows the wet/dry sand line as interpreted from the base map image. Additionally, the shoreline boundary crosses any inlets and/or other dividing water bodies within each unit. In conjunction with the boundaries of the unit, the shoreline boundary is used to define the total area of a unit that is subject to an acreage calculation.; Source: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
N/A
Fast_Acres n/a The approximate amount of fastlands (also known as uplands), in acres, that is landward of the shoreline of a unit. Land of this type is considered to generally consist of land above mean high tide. The value is derived by calculating the portion of the unit, inland of the shoreline, that is not covered by the National Wetlands Inventory (NWI) polygons.; Source: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
N/A
Unit_Type n/a CBRS units are one of two types: “System Units” and “Otherwise Protected Areas”.; Source: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
N/A
Tier n/a The polygons in this data set have two tiers of horizontal accuracy depending on the methods used for digitization of the boundary lines, and the age and quality of the official CBRS map. Tier 1 polygons are of lower quality and accuracy than Tier 2 polygons. See the Horizontal Accuracy Statement for more information.; Source: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
N/A
Shape n/a Feature geometry.; Source: Esri
N/A
Shape_Length n/a Length of feature in internal units.; Source: Esri
N/A
Area_km2 n/a The area calculated in kilometers squared.; Source: NOAA
N/A
Wet_Acres n/a The approximate amount of wetlands and open water landward of the shoreline of a unit, in acres. This value is most often derived by calculating the portion of the unit, landward of the shoreline, that contains NWI polygons. The associated aquatic habitat acreage numbers include open water landward of the coastal barrier, but not nearshore waters seaward of the shoreline. For the purpose of the acreage calculation, all units were artificially closed at the seaward shoreline using a dataset digitized for this purpose before acreage calculations were performed.; Source: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
N/A
Area_mi2 n/a The area calculated in miles squared.; Source: NOAA
N/A
Area_nm2 n/a The area calculated in nautical miles squared.; Source: NOAA
N/A
Unit n/a Unique identifier for each individual CBRS unit.; Source: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
