Description:
Abstract:
This data set contains the Limit of '8(g) Zone' line in ESRI shapefile format for the BOEMRE Atlantic Region. The '8(g) Zone' lies between the Submerged Lands Act (SLA) boundary line and a line projected 3 nautical miles seaward of the SLA boundary line. Within this zone, revenues are shared with the coastal state(s). Because GIS projection and topology functions can change or generalize coordinates, these GIS files are considered to be approximate and are NOT an OFFICIAL record for the exact Submerged Lands Act Boundary. The Official Protraction Diagrams (OPDs) and Supplemental Official Block Diagrams (SOBDs) serve as the legal definition for offshore boundary coordinates and area descriptions.
Purpose:
The Limit of '8(g) Zone' boundary line and other cadastre information the BOEMRE produces are generated in accordance with 30 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 256.8 to support Federal land ownership and mineral resource management.
Supplemental_Information:
The BOEMRE is making its existing cadastre data available at <http://www.boemre.gov/offshore/mapping/>. These data include Official Protraction Diagrams (OPDs), and Supplemental Official OCS Block Diagrams (SOBDs) in pdf format, and digital spatial data in ArcGIS shapefile format.

Data_Quality_Information:
Logical_Consistency_Report: The file is believed to be free of topologic errors.
Completeness_Report:
The entire NAD83 Limit of '8(g) Zone' boundary line in the BOEMRE Atlantic Region is shown.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Coordinates for points forming the Limit of '8(g) Zone' boundary line are calculated to 3 decimal places of a meter in the TIMS database. However, GIS functions which build topology, change projections, etc. may alter coordinate values. Furthermore, most of the Limit of '8(g) Zone' boundary consists of true arcs, but has been approximated by these shapefiles with straight line segments. For these reasons, these shapefiles are considered to be approximate and are NOT an OFFICIAL record.
