Description:
Abstract:
This GIS data set represents the saltwater marsh areas in Florida. The data are a compilation of available land use and land cover information mapped by Florida's water management districts. The most recent data available as of April 2014 are used; the photography dates are between 1999 and 2011.
Purpose:
This data set was created as a statewide compilation of saltwater marsh areas to use for mapping and analysis based on the most current data available. This information is not appropriate for time series analysis with previous compilations since the mapping methodology is different.
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.

Land use code 6420 was reselected from this data set. All polygons from this data source were used with the exception of a small area of overlap with landuse_swfwmd_2011.
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The land use land cover data were reselected for code 6420 "Salt Marsh". Areas were compiled based on interpreted area for each mapping effort. In cases of overlap, the most recent mapping effort was used. In SFWMD the areas mapped differ between 1999 and 2004-05; in SWFWMD, the areas mapped differ between 2004 and 2007. The more recent data was used where available by using the interpreted area of the more recent study to ERASE the earlier data in applicable areas. Other overlapping areas were also present: 2007 SWFWMD area overlapped the SFWMD area slightly. The same method was used to ERASE the overlapping areas between studies. The data were merged to create a statewide compilation and a topology was run to ensure no overlaps exist in the final data set. The data were loaded to ArcSDE.
