Abstract:
Ocean polygon from Mount Desert Island shoreline out to the extent of the MDI municipal jurisdoction. The data set was created to define the salt water bodies of Mount Desert Island and to serve as a digital "base map" layer. Some local tax maps show shoreline data, but this seems to be the most widely accepted representation of the ocean area around MDI. Users will need Arc/Info, PC Arc/Info, or ArcView software to use the data. 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.

Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
The original 24k USGS DLG files were obtained by the National Park Service for Acadia National Park. DLG files were converted to Arc/Info coveraged by the NPS and provided to College of the Atlantic under cooperative agreement between NPS and COA. Original covers, hydrology and transportation, provided by the park contained all features in two layers. shoreline, and other features, were "seperated out" using the DLG coding. This coding had many minor coding errors such that covers did not have proper connectivity, so coding was corrected in PC Arc/Info and thus seprate data layers were created. Data layers were clipped to the extents of the Mount Desert Island Municipal Town boundaries. Data processed by COA GIS Lab. There was one revision. Scaled proof plots were produced and checked for accuracy against USGS 24k paper quadrangles. Data was reviewed in ArcView prior to documentation.
