Description:
Abstract:
Channels were digitized of NOAA nautical chart 13270 in
ArcView and converted
to ArcInfo coverage format. Only channels with a depth
exceeding 30 feet were included.
This data set shows major dredged channels in Boston
Harbor, Massachusetts.
Purpose:
The purpose of this data set is to provide reference
information for the management of the Boston Harbor Islands
National Recreation Area.
