Abstract: The data are state protected wetlands greater than 10sq. acres.

The data represent major wetland areas of MDI. Often used as a "base

Digitized from a 1:50000 scale base map that had wetlands drawn on in
thick black lines. Map was obtained from Hancock County Planning
Commission.

Proof plots at the same scale were produced and put on top of ... View entire text

Quality Proof plots at the same scale were produced and put on top of source
maps to check digitizing. This layer has been in use by ANP and local
towns for several years and is accepted as a good representation of
these protected wetlands.

Source maps were not highly spatially accurate. Ground checking
should be done to verify wetland edges.
Access Constraints None
Use Constraints Source maps were not highly spatially accurate. Ground checking should
