Service Description: For more information see http://coastalgeospatial.noaa.gov/shoreline.html NOAA's Medium Resolution Digital Vector Shoreline is a high-quality, GIS-ready, general-use digital vector data set created by NOAA. Compiled from hundreds of NOAA coast charts, this product comprises over 75,000 nautical miles of coastline, representing the entire coterminous United States of America. Alaska, the Hawaiian Islands, Puerto Rico, and all other interests and territories of the United States are not included in the collection. Generally, 1:80,000 NOAA coast charts took precedence and were used when available. For areas where 1:80,000 charts were not readily available, charts with the next closest higher scale (e.g., 1:60,000) were used down to the highest scale available. Alternately, if higher scale charts were not available, charts of the closest lower scale (e.g., 1:100,000) were used down to the lowest scale. The digital shoreline for Florida was obtained from the state. This digital file was originally created from NOAA nautical charts and was not recreated by SEA. Generally, for these shoreline sections (EC80_06, GC80_05, and GC80_06), the highest scale charts available were used to digitize the shoreline. The resultant average mapping scale for the entire Medium Resolution Digital Vector Shoreline is approximately 1:70,000. The product is designed for use by a broad audience and is available through this service. Potential users include government agencies, universities, research institutions, and individuals in the private sector. Digital files are available in ESRI shapefile format.
