        The Gulf of Maine Habitat Mapping Project used occurrence information and species/habitat models to map potential
        habitat for 64 species of primary concern to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. These include migratory birds,
        anadromous and estuarine fishes, and threatened or endangered species.   The habitat models are based on                
        published literature, agency reports, and knowledge of experts working with the species. Environmental data sets, such as
elevations, were used in identifying suitable habitats for certain of the species.

For details see the narrative: elevation_information Purpose: This grid is one of the components used to map habitat suitability for wildlife in the Gulf of Maine. The information will be used to identify valuable areas for conservation, protection and enhancement of fish and wildlife habitat.

DATA_QUALITY_INFORMATION Attribute_Accuracy: Attribute_Accuracy_Report: The accuracy of the attributes is determined by the quality of the data sets used, which may have errors in characterizing elevation. Logical_Consistency_Report: This raster data set is based on integration of USGS DEM data. Completeness_Report: Positional_Accuracy: Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy: Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report: Data set accuracy generally corresponds to that of the base data, predominantly 1:250,000 supplemented with 1:24,000 information.
