This data set was created by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) through the comprehensive remapping of the https://www.fws.gov/project/hurricane-sandy-remapping-project. The boundaries depicted in this data set are recommendations to Congress and are NOT the current boundaries of the CBRS. The current official CBRS maps are available at: https://www.fws.gov/cbra/maps-and-data. The locations of the final recommended CBRS boundaries are relative to features on the base map(s) and are most reliable when paired with the base map image(s) that they were digitized to. The base map imagery that was used for the Hurricane Sandy Remapping Project was produced by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP) (NH, MA, RI, CT, DE, MD, VA:2018; NY, NJ:2019). The Service makes no claim regarding the proposed CBRS boundary locations relative to features on other base map sources (including more recent NAIP imagery), which may show homes, roads, and other features in slightly different positions. The Service is not responsible for any misuse or misinterpretation of this digital data set, including use of the boundaries to determine eligibility for federal financial assistance such as flood insurance. For any questions regarding these data, please contact the Service at CBRA@fws.gov. The data set complies with the National Spatial Data Infrastructure and other standards established by the Federal Geographic Data Committee.(CBRS) units in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York (Long Island), New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia as directed by section 4 of the 2006 Coastal Barrier Resources Reauthorization Act (CBRRA) (Pub. L. 109-226) to show final recommended boundary changes to the CBRS. Additional information about the project is available at
