Digital Offshore Cadastre (DOC) - Atlantic83 - Submerged Lands Act (SLA) Boundary Line
Entry ID: CZM_moris_sla_arc

[ Get Data ]
Summary
Abstract: This data set contains the Submerged Lands Act boundary line (also known as State Seaward Boundary (SSB) and Fed State Boundary) in ESRI Arc/Info export and Arc/View shape file formats for the MMS Atlantic Region. The SLA defines the seaward limit of a state's submerged lands and the landward boundary of federally managed OCS lands. In the MMS Atlantic Region it is projected 3 nautical miles ...

Purpose: The Submerged Lands Act boundary line and other cadastre information the MMS produces are generated in accordance with 30 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 256.8 to support Federal land ownership and mineral resource management.

SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION: The MMS is making its existing cadastre data available at http://www.mms.gov/ld/Maps.htm and on CD-ROM. These data will include digital images ... View entire text

Quality LOGICAL CONSISTENCY REPORT: Coordinates for OCS blocks, baseline, and projected boundaries are calculated quantities and have been defined to be correct to 3 decimal places of a meter.

COMPLETENESS REPORT: The entire NAD83 Submerged Lands Act (SLA) boundary line in the MMS Atlantic Region is shown.

HORIZONTAL POSITIONAL ACCURACY REPORT: Coordinates for points forming the Submerged Lands Act boundary line are calculated values to 3 decimal places of a meter in the TIMS database. However, GIS functions which build topology, change projections, etc. may degrade coordinate values. Furthermore, most of the SLA boundary consists of true arcs, but has been approximated in these GIS files by straight line segments. For these reasons, these GIS files are NOT an OFFICIAL record.
