Summary
Abstract: Ocean polygon from Mount Desert Island shoreline out to
the extent of the MDI municipal jurisdoction.

The data set was created to define the salt water bodies of Mount Desert
Island and to serve as a digital "base map" layer. Some local tax maps
show shoreline data, but this seems to be the most widely accepted
representation of the ocean area around MDI.

Users will need Arc/Info, PC Arc/Info, or ArcView software to use the data.

This information was obtained from Federal Geographic Committee
metadata produced by Gordon Longsworth of the College of the Atlantic
and put into Nasa Directory Interchange Format by Cheryl Solomon.
