Description:
Abstract:
This data set consists of digital data describing wetland and upland habitats for the Brown Marsh area in 2000. The data set includes 12 7.5' quadrangles. Wetlands were classified according to the Marsh Dieback Syndrome (MaDS) signature classification scheme. The classification was developed to delineate features of healthy and affected marsh and created through the use of field observations and laboratory analysis of the photography. The classification (key) references the defining vegetation and/or features and provides signature information (consistent photographic elements) for photo interpretation (located at <http://www.brownmarsh.net>).
Purpose:
The intended use of this data set is to map the extent of the marsh dieback for 2000 and to provide information for comparison to later habitat mapping efforts.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
The attribute accuracy was tested using several methods during the data development phases and completion. All interpreted photos were checked by two photo interpreters; all transfered based maps were checked by a cartographer and a photo interpreter, who didn't perform the original interpretations. Within in the interpretation phase, there were at least three stages of quality control. To further ensure the accuracy of the classification, ground truthing was conducted for both impacted and non-impacted areas. For areas of questionablity, similar non-impacted sites were visited to assist in supporting the classification. 1998 and 2000 aerial photography were used in the ground truthing activity. For digitizing phase, data are checked at least twice before finalization of maps. Data were tested by manual comparison of the source with hard copy printouts and/or symbolized display of the digital wetlands data on an interactive computer graphic system. A check for adjacent polygons with the same attribute was conducted using an Arcview Avenue script. Overall, the attribute accuracy is believed high due to the multiple error-checking steps done redundantly during processing (for both the photo-interpretation and digitizing phases). Exact tolerances vary with coverages, as does the date of the processing and testing.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
This logical consistency report includes information about both general and specific topological tests and data generation dynamics in the fidelity of data. Data is inherently polygonal. Polygons intersecting the neatline are closed along the border. Segments making up the outer and inner boundaries of a polygon tie end-to-end to completely enclose the area. Line segments are a set of sequentially numbered coordinate pairs. No duplicate features exist nor duplicate points in a data string. Intersecting lines are separated into individual line segments at the points of intersection. Point data are represented by two sets of coordinate pairs, each with the same coordinate values. All nodes are represented by a single coordinate pair which indicates the beginning or end of a line segment. The neatline for each quad is generated by connecting four corners of a digital file, as established during initialization of the digital file. All data crossing the neatline are clipped to the neatline and data within a specified tolerance of the neatline are snapped to the neatline. During the photointerpretation stage, the large scale maps were edge matched to ensure line connection and attribute labeling.
Completeness_Report:
All photo-interpretable wetlands are identified and mapped using standard methodologies and equipment for the photo interpretation phases of the data development. All wetlands were identified and mapped regardless of the size. In general, the minimum mapping unit is .5 acres depending of the wetland type and the scale and emulsion of the source aerial photography. Processing of the digital data also follows conventions and standard methodologies for the time period and within limitations of available workstation equipment at the date of data development.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
For reference points accuracy, the accuracy for the digital data are tested by visual comparison of the source with hard copy maps, and by understanding of the hardware tolerances and processing values reported by the software used in data development. Additional checks on comparison were possible when georeferencing/rectification was done using the USGS maps, which cite National Mapping Accuracy Standard compliance.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Color infrared aerial photographs were photo interpreted for marsh habitat and upland habitat according to the MaDS classification. For questionable areas of barren and open water, the 1998 NAPP photography was used to ensure if the feature was dieback related. The interpreted photos were overlaid upon maps generated by the original photography.

Process_Description:
The hard copy maps were scanned, georeferenced, and vectorized at the U.S. Geological Survey, National Wetlands Research Center using an Ideal FCS 8010 scanner, Arc8.3 georeferencing module and Able Software Corporation Raster to Vector (R2V) conversion software.

Entity_and_Attribute_Information:
Detailed_Description:
Entity_Type:
Entity_Type_Label: Marsh and Upland Habitat
Entity_Type_Definition:
Wetlands are saturated or inundated by water for an extended period of time during the growing season. For the photo interpretation process, the hydroregime results in hydric soil formation and hydrophytic plant species that present consistent aerial photographic signatures. For photointerpretation purposes, uplands are areas not periodically saturated or inundated, resulting in non-hydrophytic vegetation and soil signatures.

Attribute:
Attribute_Label: data
Attribute_Definition:
The alphanumerical designation for the wetlands and upland in the brown marsh dieback impacted and non-impacted area. The values may have associated modifiers attached. Modifiers include x (excavated), s (spoil), h (impounded), g (mangrove), o (oil), r, (wrack), and k (artificial). The designations were developed by an ad hoc committee comprised of marsh dieback scientists and researchers. All designations were developed through the use of field observations, expertise of scientific community, and examination of aerial photography. The signature key was developed specifically for the marsh dieback.

Enumerated_Domain_Value_Definition:
Healthy emergent marsh is comprised of relatively dense vegetation dominated by smooth cordgrass (Spartina alterniflora). Other emergent marsh species that may be present, usually to a considerably lesser extent include salt grass (Distichlis spicata), needle rush (Juncus romerianus), and roseau cane (Phragmites australis). Herbaceous species may occur, but do not contribute significantly to the photographic signature. The emergent vegetation is usually 0.3 to 1.5 m tall. Signature feature - brilliant fuchsia with an even texture.
