Atlas of Coastal Bays of Maryland on CD-ROM from State of Maryland Department of Natural Resources
Entry ID: MD_DNR_CDROM_COASTALBAYS

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This CD-ROM contains an electronic atlas of Maryland's Atlantic coast
including coastal bays, marshes, barrier beaches and coastal upland.

The data cover the coastal bays regions of Maryland and include three
basic levels:
- 1 SPOT satellite image from 1995
- 11 adjacent 7.5' topographic map quadrangles from USGS
- 36 adjacent 3.75' color-infrared orthophoto quadrangles

In addition, 27 GIS theme coverages are available for overlay on the
three basic data levels, including wetlands, streams, watersheds,
floodplains, submerged aquatic vegetation, roads, land use, land
parcel boundaries, historical sites, archaeological sites, protected
land areas, and poultry farms. Metadata on the source of each
coverage is available.

The CD-ROM's software functionalities allow one to zoom, pan, measure
distances, navigate between data levels, overlay the GIS themes, and
print.
