Description:
Abstract:
This GIS data set represents mangroves in Florida. The data are reselected from land use and land cover data from Florida's water management districts.
Purpose: This GIS data set represents mangrove areas in Florida.
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.

Code 6120 'Mangrove Swamp' was reselected from this data set. In areas of overlap with the Southwest Florida Water Management District and St. Johns River Water Management District data, the other districts' data were used in the compilation since they had more detail. The minimum mapping unit for mangroves in SJRWMD and SWFWMD was 0.5 acre and the South Florida Water management district data had a minimum mapping unit of 2 acres.

Source_Contribution:
Polygons coded as "CONTINUOUS MANGROVE", "PATCHY MANGROVE", or "SPARSE MANGROVE" were recoded as "Mangrove Swamp" and included in this compilation, only where no more recent data were available. In areas of overlap with 'landuse_sfwmd_2008_09', the more recent data were used. In areas of overlap with earlier SFWMD data, the Marquesas data were use, unless the "Major_bio_" was "UNKNOWN" or uncoded - in which case SFWMD from an earlier time period (2004-05 or 1999) were used.
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Code 6120 (mangrove swamp) was selected out of the 2004 or 2005 land use land cover data from Florida's water management districts. In areas where this data was not present, older data were used. See source contributions for more details.
