Overview

This datalayer represents bathymetry data - seafloor topography - for ocean waters off the coast of Massachusetts.  The layer was created by EOEEA Coastal Zone Management analysts for graphic display purposes only and is general in nature; it should not be used for navigation.  Polygons were delineated from a 1:250,000 USGS regional map. Ocean depth measurements are in meters.  The dataset is stored in ArcSDE as BTHOS250_POLY.

Attributes

The datalayer's polygon attribute table has the following items:

DEPTH_NOS Code number for depth range (see table below)
DEPTHRANGE Text field indicating depth below sea level, in meters
DEPTH_NOS DEPTHRANGE

1

  Above-15m

2

-15m to-25m

3

-25m to-40m

4

-40m to-90m

5

-90m to-200m

6

Below -200m

Maintenance

The layer is being maintained by MassGIS.
