Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) Atlas: East Florida, maps in portable document format, Volume 1, Volume 2 (NCEI Accession 0004150)

This data set comprises the Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) maps in Portable Document Format (.PDF) for the shoreline of East Florida (to encompass the coastal areas from the Florida/Georgia border to Boca Raton, Florida). ESI data characterize coastal environments and wildlife by their sensitivity to spilled oil. The ESI data include information for three main components: shoreline habitats; sensitive biological resources; and human-use resources. This Atlas was compiled from geographical and biological data collected from 1950-1990s; the intertidal habitats were mapped during aerial and ground surveys conducted in May, 1993, and biological and human-use resources data were compiled by regional biologists in 1995. The dates for the original data vary and are completely documented in within the included FGDC metadata file "METADATA.PDF" and document "INTRO.PDF".

An associated data set, Environmental Sensitivity Index Atlas (ESI) Florida 1995-1997 Digital Data Re-Release is available as NODC Accession 0014187.
