Description:
Abstract:
These GIS data show the locations of marinas, boatyards, yacht clubs, and yachting related facilities along the Massachusetts coast. The data were compiled from public lists, databases, and visual inspection of orthoimagery. While not fully comprehensive, these data constitute a majority of the marina-type resources available to recreational yachtspersons. All data are represented as points with associated attribute data. Marinas are generally defined by CZM for these data as faculties that cater to recreational yachtspersons and provide berths, moorings, maintenance and repair, hauling, storage, chandely, fuel, and/or other supplies. Marina types were subdivided into marinas, yacht clubs, boat yards, municipal facilities, and unknown. All "marinas" have tidal frontage.
Purpose:
Component of Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management Human Uses database.

Data_Set_Credit:
These spatial data were created by the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management (CZM) for the Massachusetts Executive Office of Environmental Affairs (EOEA).

Microsoft Windows XP Version 5.1 (Build 2600) Service Pack 3; ESRI ArcCatalog 9.3.0.1770

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
A formal attribute accuracy report was not conducted for these data although it is believed that all points identified as marinas are marinas as of the date of publication.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
All points are believed to represent marinas fields based on ortho imagery, records searches, and web research.
Completeness_Report:
Geographic feature locations were acquired from manuals, books, and public lists and geocoded using ArcView and Google Earth. Locations were subsequently micro-located visually over MassGIS color orthophotography (2001 and 2005) and additional point features with boat storage located on orthophotos. The methodology and content are consistent over entire coastal area. Marinas outside of the coastal zone were not included in this dataset.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
A horizontal accuracy report was not conducted for these data. Note: Point features were compiled using MassGIS 2001 and 2005 1:5,000 orthophotographs were used as a spatial reference. Locations were subsequently corrected to visible locations on orthophotographs.

Process_Description:
Data were geocoded from various source lists in Google Earth Plus and ArcView. Locations were subsequently refined visually over observable yards / marinas / yacht clubs matching addresses. CZM augmented the data set with additional web research and local knowledge courtesy of the CZM Regional Coordinators who reviewed, and as needed, made edits to the data.
