<abstract>
This data set consists of digital data describing the submerged
aquatic vegetation (seagrass) beds of the Mississippi Sound off the
Mississippi Coast, in 1992.  The data set includes 13 7.5&apos;
quadrangles, which were digitized at the Mid-Continent Ecological
Science Center from 1:24,000 scale hard copy maps developed by the
U.S. Geological Survey, National Wetlands Research Center.  The
seagrass beds were classified according to a U.S. Geological Survey,
National Wetlands Research Center derived classification scheme based
on the C-CAP Coastal Land Cover Classification system of NOAA
Coastwatch Change Analysis Project.
</abstract>
<purpose>
The intended use of this data set is to provide a comprehensive
assessment of the distribution and extent of seagrass habitat
communities along the Northeast Gulf of Mexico.

data layers developed directly from these data would also be appreciated
by U.S. Geological Survey, National Wetlands Research Center staff. Users
should be aware that comparison with other data sets for the same area
from other time periods may be inaccurate due to inconsistencies resulting
from changes in mapping conventions, data collection, and computer

Interpreted photos were quality checked by two photo interpreters
for attribute classification.  Field verification was performed for areas
where attribute classification was questionable; local personnel with
state and federal agencies assisted in field identification.  The
mylar-based 1:24,000 maps were checked by cartographic personnel for
line and labelworks. The attribute accuracy is tested by manually
comparing hard copy plots of the digital data with the source
materials.  When attributes cannot be visually verified on plots they
are interactively queried and verified on screen.  In addition,
the attributes are compared against a master set of valid attributes.
</attraccr>
</attracc>
<logic>
ARC/INFO software is used to create and maintain topological relationships
between features.  There are no duplicate features, but coincident lines
are maintained between data layers where appropriate.  Polygonal features
begin and end at the same point, contain no overshoots or undershoots, and
contain a single label.  Linear features are continuous where appropriate,
i.e., dangling arcs are removed if they are not required.
</logic>
<complete>
For cartographic process, accordance with nationally accepted mapping
standards and conventions were followed.

The horizontal positional accuracy is tested by visual comparison
of hard copy check plots to the source materials and verifying the
location of the data on-screen relative to other data layers in

Cartographic process:  Planning for the flight mission was
prepared according to shoreline distance.  After acquiring the
aerial photography, stereo pairs were created and packaged
according to 1:24,000 topographic maps; these maps also served as
base maps for cartographic transformation work.  The photos were
interpreted using a Bausch Lomb stereoscope at 10X magnification.
Cartographic work was performed using a Zoom Transfer Scope, and
magnification varied according to source material scale.

Digitizing Process:  Mylar overlays were manually digitized using
an Altek Datatab digitizer to capture the data at a resolution of
at least 0.001 inches.  Four control points corresponding to the
four corners of the quadrangle were used for registration during
data collection.  Cover type features continuing onto adjacent
quadrangles were adjusted to intersect the quad boundary at a
common, coincident node.  Attributes were assigned as the data
were digitized, or in an editing session after the digitizing was
completed.
