Abstract:
The NOAA Coastal Services Center's Marine Jurisdiction dataset was created to assist in marine spatial planning and offshore alternative energy sitting. This is a composite dataset derived from a collection of authoritative marine boundary data provided by the DIO Minerals Management Service and the NOAA Office of Coast Survey.
Purpose:
The Marine Jurisdiction data set is a standardized compilation of published marine boundaries from the NOAA Office of Coast Survey and the Minerals Management Service. Authoritative marine boundary data and information is available from the Agency of Responsibility, although often only at a regional-scale and in a number of differing and disparate formats. The NOAA Coastal Services Center, working in conjunction with the Agency of Responsibility through the FGDC Marine Boundary Working Group, has compiled and standardized several datasets to create a national-scale, standardized data set based on several OGC and FGDC standards. Such datasets help to alleviate the initial cost of data mining, collecting, and the processing necessary to utilize such datasets for a variety of uses.
Note: THE SPATIAL REPRESENTATIONS OF MARINE BOUNDARIES ARE BASED ON INTERPRETATION OF AVAILABLE INFORMATION AND SHOULD NOT BE CONSTRUED AS LEGALLY BINDING. Not for use for scales greater than 1:25,000.

Process_Description:
1. Original source data was acquired from Minerals Management Service and NOAA Office of Coast Survey. A complete set of data was obtained for the Submerged Lands Act Boundary and Revenue Sharing Line , Territorial Sea, Contiguous Zone, and Exclusive Economic Zone. 2. After data was downloaded, staff ensured the data contained an original projection/coordinate system setting, if not this was set in the layer properties. 3. Data loaded into file geodatabase as working environment. 4. During the load, layer tolerance and precision were set: for projected coordinates in meters staff used (0.1 and 0.01), for geographic coordinates the default setting of a 9.3 FGDB in High Precision (0.000000899322029 and 0.000000089932203) was used. 5. After reviewing the attribute table, extraneous attribute fields removed. 6. Unnecessary polyline splits were dissolved and multiparts features were exploded to single part. On MMS layers dissolve is based on "BDRY_APRV_", on Office of Coast Survey layers are dissolved on "APPRVDATE". 7. A new empty table was built using the specifications provided in the data dictionary. 8. The empty table of standardized field names and working layer were joined on the "OBJECTID" field. 9. Staff populated attributes based on existing data from remaining fields and metadata. 10. Staff again reviewed attribute table, and removed extraneous fields. 11. Staff validated the geometry: Used ArcToolbox DATA MANAGEMENT/FEATURES/REPAIRGEOMETRY 12. Individual features classes were merged into one super class identified as "MarineJurisdictions". 13. Staff created and added non-feature linked annotation at 1:250,000 and 1:1,000,000 scales. 14. A layer file was developed containing symbology using the feature name convention in the boundaryId domain. 15. Staff acquired, ingested, merged and updated metadata from providers to create a single metadata record for the new value-added dataset. 16. Quality process review was conducted peers on the finalized data and metadata. 17. Initial staff reviewed quality process feedback, determined applicability, and made adjustments to data to meet process specifications. 18. Source data will be evaluated annually to determine need for updating.
