Geospatial_Data_Presentation_Form: vector digital data
Description:
Abstract:
This GIS data set represents anchorages in the state of Florida. An anchorage is a public place to anchor or moor a boat for overnight stay, not registered with harbors or marina. Anchorages are transient-welcome, have no facilities, and are open public areas.
Purpose:
This data set represents the anchorages in the state of Florida for general mapping purposes.
Supplemental_Information:
Prior to July 1, 2004, the Fish and Wildlife Research Institute (FWRI) was known as the Florida Marine Research Institute (FMRI). The institute name has not been changed in historical data sets or references to work completed by the Florida Marine Research Institute. The institute name has been changed in references to ongoing research, new research, and contact information.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
DEPTHRANGE attribute was determined using the charts in the Maptech Guide. The range is approximate, based on the highest and lowest depth points shown between two contours. Depths should not be considered authoritative for navigation. Anchorages are unnamed, and the DESCRIPTION attribute was determined based on the position of the anchorage relative to other landmarks in the area.
Logical_Consistency_Report: Data are topologically and logically consistent.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Locations are approximate. Use these data for general mapping purposes only.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
FMRI staff and intern determined the parameters necessary to define an area as an anchorage. An anchorage is a public place to anchor or moor a boat for overnight stay, not registered with harbors or marina. Anchorages are transient-welcome, have no facilities, and are open public areas.
Intern used Maptech guides to find coordinates of the anchorages, then created a shapefile in ArcMap 8.3 and plotted the points.
