Description:
Abstract:
NOAA's ENC Direct to GIS web portal provides comprehensive access to display, query, and download all available NOAA ENC data in a variety of GIS/CAD formats for non-navigational purposes using Internet mapping service technology. An area which contains one or more submarine cables.
The Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management (CZM) downloaded the approach/harbor scale cable areas from NOAA's ENC Direct website on May 21, 2009. The website was up-to-date through April 9, 2009. CZM changed the name of these data from "NOAA ENC Direct to GIS: Cable Area" to "Cable Areas." CZM projected the data to the Massachusetts State Plane Coordinate System, Mainland Zone (FIPS zone 2001), meters.
Purpose:
NOAA ENC Direct to GIS Internet Mapping Service is designed to allow for the visualization, querying and downloading of NOAA's Electronic Navigational Chart's (NOAA ENC) data in common Geographic Information System (GIS) formats.

Lineage:
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The NOAA ENC database has been built from a combination of charted information as well as original "source" information. NOAA has compiled critical features such as channel limits, aids to navigation, and obstructions from the original documents that were used to put the feature on the paper chart. The objective is to use the most accurate information for features that are critical to the safety of navigation. NOAA uses a number of sources in compiling NOAA ENCS including U.S. Army Corps of Engineers surveys, drawings, and permits, U.S. Coast Guard Local Notices to Mariner, National Imagery and Mapping Agency Notices to Mariners, NOAA hydrographic surveys, and the largest scale paper chart of an area. ENC Direct to GIS data was created by transforming Approach and Harbor NOAA ENC version 2 cells to ESRI's shapefile format using Safe Software's Feature Manipulation Engine.

Process_Description:
The approach/harbor scale cable areas were downloaded from NOAA's ENC Direct website using the Spatial Direct Data Order Form on May 21, 2009. The website was up-to-date through April 9, 2009. See the NOAA ENC Direct to GIS help file (<http://ocs-spatial.ncd.noaa.gov/encdirect/help/helpfile.htm>) for more information about the different scale bands of data and for a link to the Spatial Direct Data Order Form.
The data were projected to the Massachusetts State Plane Coordinate System, Mainland Zone (FIPS zone 2001), meters, in June 2009.
