Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) Atlas: Florida 1995-1997 maps in portable document format (pdf) and geographic information systems data (NODC Accession 0014187)

ESI data characterize coastal environments and wildlife by their sensitivity to spilled oil. The ESI data include information for three main components: shoreline habitats; sensitive biological resources; and human-use resources. These data are from a single DVD product that is a re-release of Florida ESI data originally published between 1998 and 2004 as separate CDs in portable document format (PDF). The original PDFs been modified here to include the back of the map or seasonality pages as part of each individual map document. This should make it easier to distribute and print maps and ensure that the supporting information is always included. A master index for navigating through the PDF maps is provided. Also included on the DVD is the state-wide Florida ESI data in a geodatabase format (Arc GIS v9.x or compatible). Data for the St. John's River region is included.

The content of these data has not been updated or modified from that published in the original ESI atlases. The original products were archived at NODC under the following accesion numbers: East Florida 0004150, West Florida 0006249, South Florida 0006539, West Peninsular Florida Part One 0006377, West Peninsular Florida Part Two 0006394. Source data dates range from 1964 to 1996, and source data is described in the metadata included in the original data sets.

Information from left of disc -digital data re-release, January 2007, Seattle, Washington, DVD

The geodatabase and the supporting .mxd file have the feature classes symbolized with standard ESI colors and hatch patterns. Relates are pre-established to the ESI data tables.
Check http://response.restoration.noaa.gov/esitoolkit on occasion to see if there are any additional tools or bug fixes posted. Layer files are provided as well, and can be used with existing map projects in the Florida area where you may want to integrate individual ESI feature classes. These layers files provide the appropriate symbolization and legend and also have stored the relates to the data tables.

The set up of the Florida data differs slightly from most of the other NOAA published ESI data sets. Because these data were generated using a region data type, when one polygon is selected all of the other polygons with the associated resource number will
also be selected. This may slightly alter the behavior you experience when hand selecting polygons or when querying the ESI data base. The primary impact will be that area measurements may include polygons you did not explicitly select. If you have any difficulties or questions about using these data, please contact the data originator at: orr.esi@noaa.gov
