Description:
Abstract:
This data set represents the extent, status, and location of current NWI riparian mapping projects.
Purpose:
The present goal of the Service is to provide the citizens of the United States and its Trust Territories with current geospatially referenced information on the status and extent of riparian mapping.
Supplemental_Information:
Comments regarding the interpretation or classification of wetlands or deepwater habitats can be directed to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service: wetlands_team@fws.gov
These spatial data are not designed to stand alone. They form topical overlays to the U.S. Geological Survey 1:24,000 or 1:25,000 scale topographic quadrangles. Any use of trade, product, or firm names is for descriptive purposes only and does not imply endorsement by the U.S. Government.
Although this Federal Geographic Data Committee-compliant metadata file is intended to document the data set in nonproprietary form, as well as in Arc/INFO format, this metadata file may include some Arc/INFO-specific terminology.
