[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Important Ecologic Resources of Mount Desert Island and lands of MDI
towns. Created from sources compiled by the Maine Coast Heritage Trust
and US Dept.of the Interior.

The original mapping was done on mylar over USGS 24k quad base. This
layer was digitized so that it could interact with other geo_spatial
data.

The original mylars were obtained through Acadia National Park and
were digitized at COA under a cooperative agreement.

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.

used along the "Evaluation of Island Resources" Pilot Study Report by
Bruce Jacobson and Hollie Dominie in 1988 This describes methods and
sources of original information in much more detail.

Scaled proof plots were produced and checked for accuracy against USGS
24k paper quadrangles and mylar originals. Data was reviewed in
ArcView prior to documentation.
Access Constraints None
Use Constraints This data should be used along with the "Evaluation of Island
Resources" Pilot Study Report by Bruce Jacobson and Hollie Dominie in 1988.
