Users be advised that the accuracy of this data set is completely dependent upon the accuracy of the NOAA raster charts. For more details on this process, see the process description. The text description in 59 FR 28805 is always the one, true definition of right whale critical habitat. These or any other depictions are for information purposes only and shouldn't be relied on for regulatory purposes.

Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Explanation:
Critical Habitat boundaries digitized from NOAA Navigation Charts 11480A1 (Scale= 1:449,659) and 11460A1 (Scale= 1:466,940). Near the southern end of the critical habitat zone the navigation charts overlap. At this overlap, there are discrepancies between the charts; the critical habitat lines on the charts do not match. The finer scale navigation chart (11480A1) was given priority at this overlap, and the shapefile was edited to smooth the transition between the line discrepancies.
