Description:
Abstract:
These data were collected from May 2005 to June 2006 for the use in the CZM "Coastal Public Access Sites" data viewer. The points create a hyperlink for field photos taken from South of Boston to the Rhode Island border. Sites include all those in the MassGIS Protected and Recreational Open Space GIS data layer as well as all other publicly assessable land that leads to the shore including public rights-of-way and landings. These data were used for ground truthing rights-of-way and landings that not present in the MassGIS Protected and Recreational Open Space GIS datalayer. The GPS unit used was Trimble GeoExplorer III and the software to used to process the data was Pathfinder Office 3.00.
Purpose:
These point data are for visual use only and serve as loci for photographs that are displayed in the CZM "Coastal Public Access Sites" data viewer.
