Long Island Sound 2016 PARKS / MANAGED AREAS

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

These feature classes reside within the SOCECON Feature Data Set of the Long Island Sound 2016 ESI Geodatabase. They contain vector points and polygons representing Parks and Managed Areas human-use resource data for Long Island Sound and adjacent lands and waters. The study area includes Long Island Sound, Peconic Bay, tributary watersheds, tidal tributaries, and freshwater streams and lakes, in New York and Connecticut.

Features represented as points include National Landmark (NL). Features represented as polygons include Management Area (MA), Military (MI), Nature Conservancy (NC), Park (P), State Protected Area (SPA), and Wildlife Refuge (WR).

Each ArcGIS each feature class (PARKS/MANAGED AREA POINTS, PARKS/MANAGED AREA POLYGONS) has an attribute table, considered as an Entity or "Child Item" in this metadata record. Location-specific Type and Source information are stored in these related data tables, SOC_DAT and SOURCES (described below), which are stand-alone tables within the Geodatabase.

This data set is a portion of the ESI data for Long Island Sound. 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.

Additional human-use information is in other feature class themes within the SOCECON Directory, including NAVIGATION/MARINE (POINTS, LINES, and POLYGONS), SOCECON (POINTS and LINES), POLITICAL/JURISDICTIONAL (POINTS and POLYGONS), RESOURCE MANAGEMENT (POINTS and POLYGONS), and NAT_HAZARD (POLYGONS).

Access Constraints Access Constraints: None | 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. | Distribution Liability: Although these data have been processed and used successfully on a computer system at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), no warranty, expressed or implied, is made by NOAA regarding the utility of the data on any other system, nor shall the act of distribution constitute any such warranty. NOAA warrants the delivery of this product in computer-readable format. If problems are encountered in downloading the ESI data or with file corruption, contact NOAA (see Distributor). These data represent a snapshot in time and temporal changes may have occurred. The data are not intended to include all biological or human-use resources present in an area; they focus on species and resources particularly sensitive to oiling. In the event of a spill, they should be used for a first assessment only. The data providers are the experts with regard to individual resources. They should be contacted to confirm if more current data exist or if in-depth information is needed about a particular resource.
