Rate of shoreline change statistics for New York State coastal wetlands

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

This data set contains baselines used to calculate shoreline rate of change statistics for New York State coastal wetlands. Analysis was performed in ArcMap 10.5.1 using the Digital Shoreline Analysis System (DSAS), created by U.S. Geological Survey, version 5.0, and polyline vector historical shorelines from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) . The baselines used in the analysis serve as the originating point for the orthogonal transects cast by the DSAS software. The transects intersect each shoreline establishing intersection measurement points, which were then used to calculate the rates. U.S. Fish and Wildlife National Wetland Inventory polygon vector data provided extents of coastal wetland boundaries, and determined where baselines were drawn. Baselines were then constructed parallel to NOAA shoreline vectors. Baselines were manually created using standard ArcMap 'Create Features' tools, and do not represent real-world features.
