Users be advised that the accuracy of this data set is completely dependent upon the accuracy of the shoreline, State Park and Aquatic Preserve, and National Park data used in the creation process. For more details on this process, see the process description. The text description in 74 FR 45353 is always the one, true definition of smalltooth sawfish critical habitat. These or any other depictions are for information purposes only and shouldn't be relied on for regulatory purposes.

FWRI (Florida Fish & Wildlife Research Institute)Abstract: this GIS data set contains Florida county boundaries found on the most recent 7.5-minute USGS (1:24000 scale) quadrangles available in 1997. The county borders extend to the state water line. The shoreline linework matches that of CAMRA/FMRI 1:40K shoreline (which includes 2003 updates). Initially digitized in 1990 by USFWS under FMRI contract, the data set was created from the most current NOAA nautical charts available at the time. The scale of the source charts varied from 1:10,000 in some harbors to 1:80,000 in the Big Bend area. However, most of the source scale is 1:40,000. Some areas that have needed more accuracy for individual projects, have been digitized from USGS 7.5-minute quadrangles and Digital Orthophoto Quarter Quadrangles (DOQQs). Last review 2003.

This GIS data set represents aquatic presevers (AP) in the State of Florida, originally created by FMRI from legal descriptions using 1:24,000 scale shoreline, now maintained by Florida DEP Coastal and Aquatic Managed Areas (CAMA). Aquatic preserves are ecologically significant submerged lands maintained in relatively pristine condition. Currently all AP are also Outstanding Florida Waters (OFWs). Last update 2003.

Major roads from the 1999 version of the Florida Department of Transportation Roads Characteristics Inventory (RCI) dataset. Data created by originating agencies. GeoPlan during QA/QC process reprojected data to FGDL Albers, precision DOUBLE, tolerances to FGDL standards, added description, road type in 2000 (Florida Geographic Data Library). In 2002 FMRI corrected for datum shift.
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Shorelines, roads, state parks, state aquatic preserves, national park boundaries and COLREGS-72 lines were merged to produce the Critical Habitat area described in the text of the rule.
