Title: Atlas of Coastal Bays of Maryland on CD-ROM from State of Maryland Department of Natural Resources
Description:
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.
