National Enironmental Sensitivity Index Shoreline: GULF/ATLANTIC ESI, PACIFIC ESI: ESIL

Metadata Updated: March 16, 2024

The Gulf/Atlantic ESIL data set contains vector lines representing the shoreline and coastal habitats of the contiguous Atlantic and Gulf states; the Pacific ESI represents the shoreline for the contiguous Pacific coast states. Line segments are classified according to the Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) classification system. These data are a complilation of the ESIL data from the most recent ESI atlas publications. 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 national dataset contains only the ESIL shoreline data layer.

Access Constraints Cite As: Office of Response and Restoration, [Date of Access]: National Enironmental Sensitivity Index Shoreline: GULF/ATLANTIC ESI, PACIFIC ESI: ESIL [Data Date Range], https://www.fisheries.noaa.gov/inport/item/69925., Access Constraints: None, Use Constraints: DO NOT USE MAPS FOR NAVIGATIONAL PURPOSES. Besides the above warning, there are no use constraints on these data. 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. Acknowledgment of the originators, publishers, contributors, and sources listed would be appreciated in products derived from these data.
