         The Gulf of Maine Habitat Mapping Project used occurrence information and species/habitat models
to map potential habitat for 63 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.

  Description:
    Abstract:
      Habitat for Eastern Prairie Fringed Orchid  was based occurrence data, and on National Wetlands
Inventory data for wetland vegetation and water regime.  For details see the model narrative:
eastern_prairie_fringed_orchid_model.htm
    Purpose:
      Habitat suitability information mapped for 63 species of concern in the Gulf of Maine will be used
to identify valuable areas for conservation, protection and enhancement of plant, fish and wildlife
habitat.
    Supplemental_Information:
      The mapped habitat is based on known occurrences, and extrapolated using National Wetlands Inventory
data on water regime
and vegetation.

DATA_QUALITY_INFORMATION Attribute_Accuracy: Attribute_Accuracy_Report: The accuracy of the attributes is determined by the scale and quality of the data sets used, which is subject to photo-interpretation, and may have errors in characterizing land cover, soil, or other environmental condition. Logical_Consistency_Report: This raster data set is based on a descriptive model, applied to available GIS datasets. Completeness_Report: The coverage may omit useful habitat or erroneously identify habitat because of limitations of the source data and the models operating on those data. Habitat identification was limited by the spatial resolution of the underlying data and the quality and age of information available. The species may not be found in all the habitats shown, or may be found in additional areas; the information provided may not accurately portray most recent conditions. Positional_Accuracy: Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy: Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report: Data set accuracy generally corresponds to that of the 1:24,000 base data used to align the raster data.
