Description:
Abstract:
The data set consists of boundaries of Significant Coastal Fish and Wildlife Habitats as identified by NYS Department of State, Division of Coastal Resources. The areas involved are all limited to the perimeter waters of NY State. These include Lake Erie, Niagara River, Lake Ontario, St. Lawrence River, Hudson River (to the Troy Dam), and marine waters around NYC and Long Island.
Purpose:
To satisfy requirements of article 42 Executive Law and implementing regulations found at 19NYCRR602 which describes the identification, assessment and designations of significant coastal fish and wildlife habitats under the State's Coastal Management Program.
Supplemental_Information:
Original data was hand-drawn over DOT topographic quadrangle sections and filed with local governments. Each identified habitat has an accompanying text narrative describing the living resources values leading to designation as a significant coastal habitat: these narratives are not included as part of this data set. For information on the significant coastal fish and wildlife habitats documentation contact Gregory L. Capobianco at Department of State at the address noted below or at . Digital data set (version 1.1) was previewed by NYS DEC Habitat Inventory Unit and subsequently corrected as per their recommendations. This is version 1.2 of the significant Coastal Fish and Wildlife Habitats.
Polygons on Long Island (Nassau and Suffolk Counties) do not have the same
density of vertices as found in the remainder of the coverage based on the
original draft digitizing done for these polygons - these are identified in the habitat name field with capital letters. Polygons in the eastern (Peconics) and northern (Long Island Sound) sections of Long Island are expected to be updated in summer of 1999. Scale: 1:24000

Access_Constraints: Available to data sharing cooperative members, local governments participating in Local Waterfront Revitalization Programs and associated contractors. Data usage defined under NYS cooperative data sharing agreement.
Use_Constraints:
Paper copies are still the legal designation copies until new digitized boundaries have been filed as part of the coastal area map with municipalities where the significant coastal habitat is located.
Native_Data_Set_Environment:
Data was created in MapInfo 4.5 for the majority of the SCF & W Habitats. Some of the habitats along the eastern shore of Lake Ontario and along the St. Lawrence River were digitized in ArcInfo and exported into the MapInfo format. Original draft work for Long Island habitats was also done in ArcInfo and exported into the MapInfo format. Work was done on the Win'95 and WinNT operating system. Data stored on a server under \GIS\Basedata\Habitats\ Significant Habitats\ Coastal_Habs V1.2 and take up approx. 1.7 MB of disk space.

Data_Quality_Information:
Logical_Consistency_Report:
Repeatedly checked by ObjCheck Version 3.0 by MapInfo and any reported
errors were all corrected. A second check included data being translated
into ArcInfo using MapInfo export utility Arclink Version 3.2 and the
resulting coverage was checked for logical consistency within ArcInfo. All
errors due to differences between MapInfo and ArcInfo were corrected on the
original MapInfo data.
Completeness_Report:
Spatial analysis is complete. Taxonomic attributes were generalized to
include the town and habitat in which the majority of the habitat falls.
These names were compared with the names maintained in the state's municipal
boundary coverage and on the paper narrative document records for each
habitat.

Process_Description:
Most polygons were created by "heads-up" digitizing using scanned
registered planimetric quads as a base. Some polygons were hand
digitized using USGS and DOT Topo Quads and NOAA Navigational charts as
base maps and checked against scanned registered DOT Planimetric Quads.
Hand digitized polygons had a Root Mean Square error values ranging from
0.003 - 0.000.
