Public and NGO Beaches, 2015, North and Mid-Atlantic U.S.

Summary

This dataset represents public and non-governmental organizations (NGO) beaches in the North and Mid-Atlantic. The data are part of a larger project, Inventory of Habitat Modifications to Sandy Oceanfront Beaches in the U.S. Atlantic Coast Breeding Range of the Piping Plover (Charadrius melodus) as of 2015: Maine to North Carolina. Beachfront land parcels in public or NGO ownership were delineated from a variety of sources, including county or municipal parcel data available online to the public (see Table 1 of Rice 2015b for a full list of sources consulted for Maine to New York). Public and NGO-owned beachfront parcels are delineated with narrow, lime green lines in Google Earth Pro. The public / NGO line segments were delineated [...]

Purpose

This dataset represents public and non-governmental organizations (NGO) beaches in the North and Mid-Atlantic. The data are part of a larger project, Inventory of Habitat Modifications to Sandy Oceanfront Beaches in the U.S. Atlantic Coast Breeding Range of the Piping Plover (Charadrius melodus) as of 2015: Maine to North Carolina. Beachfront land parcels in public or NGO ownership were delineated from a variety of sources, including county or municipal parcel data available online to the public (see Table 1 of Rice 2015b for a full list of sources consulted for Maine to New York). Public and NGO-owned beachfront parcels are delineated with narrow, lime green lines in Google Earth Pro. The public / NGO line segments were delineated parallel to the beach segment lines in order to measure the length of sandy beach habitat present within the public and NGO tracts in 2015. Public/NGO land ownership may extend beyond the lines shown, which delineate the length of sandy beach within the public/NGO owned parcels. In some locations the public/NGO ownership lines include areas of rocky beach where the rocky beach is directly adjacent to segments of sandy beach because the substrate may change over time from predominantly rocky to sandy and vice versa. All digitizing was completed by a single GIS analyst.
