Title:
Oceans Act of 2008: Ocean Management Planning Area - 250m2 Analysis Grid (Exact Border)
Geospatial_Data_Presentation_Form: vector digital data
Description:
Abstract:
This GIS data layer is a gridded polygon representation of the Ocean Management Planning Area defined in the Oceans Act of 2008; for a full text, see <http://www.mass.gov/legis/laws/seslaw08/sl080114.htm>. The grid cells are 250 meters on a side and projected into the Mass State Coordinate System, Mainland Zone (Fipszone 2001), meters.
Purpose:
These data are intended to be used in a the creation of a comprehensive plan to manage development in Massachusetts state waters as mandated in the Oceans Act of 2008.

Process_Description:
The data were created by the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management using the ArcGIS "Create constant raster tool" set to 250m. The resulting raster was then converted to a polygon and clipped to the Ocean Management Planning Area layer. The data were then converted to the Mass State Plane Coordinate System, Mainland Zone (Fipszone 2001), meters.
