North Carolina Seagrass Submersed Rooted Vasculars 1990 Biotic

A GIS data set of polygon data interpreted from aerial photography taken by NOAA/NOS Photogrammetry Branch depicting areas of Aquatic Beds of Rooted Vascular Plants in coastal north Carolina. Predominantly submersed rooted vasculars (SRV) but including some floating rooted vasculars (FRV). The nomenclature and definitions originally developed according to the Coastal Land Cover Classification System for the NOAA Coastal Change Analysis Project (C-CAP), Journal of Coastal Research 9(3):862-872 have been crosswalked into the Florida System For Classification of Habitats in Estuarine and Marine Environments (SCHEME) to build consistency with similar NOAA developed benthic data sets.
