Massachusetts Coastal Zone Management (MCZM), within the Executive Office of Environmental Affairs (EOEA), has compiled a salt marsh restoration GIS coverage for the Parker River/Essex Bay Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC) project. The purpose of the project was to develop a regional picture of past, current, and potential restoration sites along with supporting information to help future restoration planning. The focus area for this project includes the salt marsh between Salisbury and Gloucester. In ArcSDE the layer is named SALTMARSHRSTR_PT.
This datalayer was compiled by meeting with staff from the Massachusetts Audubon Society and Northeast Massachusetts Mosquito Control and Wetlands Management. Restoration sites and Open Marsh Water Management (OMWM) were identified by having staff from these two organizations identify point locations of restoration sites using USGS base maps. The database was created in ArcView and then joined with the associated points.
This data layer has a point attribute table with the following items:
