Pelican Island and Pass La Mer to Chaland Pass restoration (BA-38): Chaland Island (2005, 2007) and Pelican Island (2011, 2013) habitat classifications

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

The Louisiana State Legislature created Coastal Wetlands Planning, Protection, and Restoration Act (CWPPRA) in order to conserve, restore, create and enhance Louisiana's coastal wetlands. The wetland restoration plans developed pursuant to these acts specifically require an evaluation of the effectiveness of each coastal wetlands restoration project in achieving long-term solutions to arresting coastal wetlands loss. This data set includes mosaicked aerial photographs for the Pelican Island and Pass La Mer to Chaland Pass Resoration (BA-38) project for 2005, 2007, 2011, and 2013. This data is used as a basemap habitat classification. It also serves as a visual tool for project managers to help them identify any obvious problems or land loss within their project boundary. To better evaluate the effectiveness of restoration efforts, a habitat classification is performed on specific CWPPRA sites to help assess landscape changes. The intended use of this data set is to provide information to aid efforts in the conservation, restoration, creation and enhancement of Louisiana's coastal wetlands in order to aid in long-term solutions to these and other problems. The dataset consists of 4 separate items: 1. BA-38 Habitat: Chaland 2005 (Raster GIS dataset) 2. BA-38 Habitat: Chaland 2007 (Vector GIS dataset) 3. BA-38 Habitat: Pelican 2011 (Vector GIS dataset) 4. BA-38 Habitat: Pelican 2013 (Vector GIS dataset)
