Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) Atlas: Mississippi, maps and geographic information systems data (NCEI Accession 0013801)

This data set comprises the Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) maps for the shoreline of Mississippi. 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 developed to be utilized within desktop GIS systems and contains GIS files and related D-base files. Associated files include MOSS (Multiple Overlay Statistical System) export files, .PDF maps, and detailed user guides and metadata.

The intertidal habitats were mapped during aerial and ground surveys conducted in 1995. The biological and human-use resources data were compiled by regional biologists in 1995. The dates for these data vary and range from 1968 to 1995. Dates are documented in the included metadata file.
