Users be advised that the accuracy of this data set is completely dependent upon the accuracy of the shoreline data used in the creation process. For more details on this process, see the process description. The text description in 63 FR 46701 is always the one, true definition of green turtle critical habitat. These or any other depictions are for information purposes only and shouldn't be relied on for regulatory purposes.

Process_Description:
FR 46699 Vol. 63 No 1700 Sept 2, 1998 was reinterpretted and there is a map in the FR which shows that the islands weren't buffered, only Isla de Culebra. Projected base data to WGS-Mercator (units=meters), and buffered to 5.6 km. This buffer does not look like the FR, as it bisects Cayo Lobito. Then the data was reprojected to GCS-WGS84.
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Land area was erased from the buffer area using ET Geowizards. The source of land area used to erase was from the NCCOS project for coral and seafloor mapping.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Detailed shoreline for Culebra Island from NOAA digital vector chart was appended to add smaller islands, then a 3 nautical mile buffer was generated using ESRI's ArcGIS software.
