Description:
Abstract:
The National Marine Sanctuary Program manages a system of sanctuaries and othermanaged areas around the country.  The legal boundaries of these sanctuaries aredefined within the Code of Federal Regulations, at 15 C.F.R. Part 922 and thesubparts for each national marine sanctuary.  The GIS compatible digital boundaryfiles for each national marine sanctuary are representations of those legalboundaries and are based on the best available data.  These files are availablefor public use at locations defined in this metadata record.
Purpose:
These GIS compatible digital files are provided to promote an understanding of theboundaries of each national marine sanctuary.  They are based on the legaldefinition of each sanctuary as defined in the Code of Federal Regulations, at 15C.F.R. Part 922 and the subparts for each national marine sanctuary.  These digitalfiles are not intended and should not be relied upon for use in navigation or legalpurposes.  For legal questions relating to the digital files, please contact theNMSP at the information provided in this metadata record.

Source_Contribution:
The depicted shoreline of the sanctuary boundary was derived in part from information contained within the CFR.
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The geographic boundary coordinates listed within the United States Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) were converted to decimal degrees and a text file was created. A point coverage was then generatedusing ArcInfo GIS. The coverage was projected into the Geographic Coordinate System and overlaid on large scale nautical charts and analyzed with additional data such as adjacent sanctuaries and shorelines. Specific attention was given to analysis of inconsistencies between textual descriptions and listed coordinates. The polyline files were created using a combination of the coordinate list from the CFR and applicable shoreline vector files. Forpoint files, two methods were used. If the sanctuary had a shoreline component, a polyline to point script was used to create a point for each vertex. If a shoreline component was not present, then the original coordinates from the CFR were used to create a point shapefile.Polygon files were created by converting polylines to polygons.
