NOAA Coastal Services Center C-CAP Data Distribution Tool
Entry ID: C_CAP

[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: The C-CAP Data Distribution Tool has been developed by the NOAA Coastal Services Center for distribution of their C-CAP land cover and change data. With this tool, users can search, view and download all available C-CAP data. This tool uses ESRI's ArcIMS technology to perform these functions.

The Data:

The Coastal Change Analysis Program (C-CAP) is a national effort to develop and distribute regional land cover and change analysis data for the coastal zone by using remote sensing technology. In addition to data development, C-CAP establishes guidelines and standards for developing digital, regional land cover and change data along the nation's coastal zone. The data used in this program are created from a combination of satellites and fieldwork. C-CAP classifies land cover types into 22 standardized classes that include forested areas, urban areas, and wetlands.

Access Constraints
This tool should work both in Netscape and Internet Explorer 5.5
or above. Internal tests suggest that this error is a problem
specific to Internet Explorer 5.0 and is not an error in the
ArcIMS application. The most straightforward solution for this
impediment is to upgrade Internet Explorer 5.0 to Internet
Explorer version 5.5 or above. Microsoft also has a page
dedicated to Troubleshooting Browsing Error Messages in
Microsoft ý Internet Explorer that deals with this error and its
potential causes. Please read this Web page if you are
experiencing the above error. Note that most Internet Explorer
5.0 browsers will work with the system without a problem. An
upgrade is not necessarily recommended if you are able to access
the site properly with your version of Internet Explorer.

This ArcIMS site will request to place a cookie in the your
browser when you access the site. This cookie contains
information that allows the Web server to remember what queries
you have run in your browser window. The application can then
ensure that the maps that are displayed in your browser match
your area of interest. Your browser will delete this cookie as
soon as you close all windows in your browser application. When
you return to this site, a new cookie will be issued to help the
Web server keep track of your progress.
Use Constraints
Coastal Change Analysis Program (C-CAP) land cover and change
analysis data are useful and appropriate for application to many
coastal management issues.

This tool is available for public use.
