Supplemental Information
These text files are written in the ArcInfo Coverage Export (.e00) format, and may be imported by most Geographic Information System software.

This is an edited historical coverage. Photo interpretation and compilation onto 1:24,000 scale USGS Mylar quad sheets was performed by Lewis Environmental. These Mylar's were subsequently digitized into rectified Landsat TM images (UTM, NAD27 resample to 15 meters) by FMRI. All digitizing was done using ELAS (Earth Resources Laboratory Application Software), a software developed by NASA. The ELAS file was imported into ERDAS 7.5 and later converted into a vector coverage using Arc/Info 8.0. "SAR_BEN" was edited from the original "Sarasota 87" coverage. Several records under the "Habitat" field were deleted (bay water, upland water, water).
