GIS Data Files
Information Systems (GIS) data is a collection of ArcView
Shapefiles data generated by the Bureau of Beaches and Coastal
Systems. The datum for
all files is NAD83-90, projected in Geographic, in decimal degrees. All Shapefiles are statewide coverages
unless otherwise noted. The Shapefiles listed below are
zipped for downloading and can be uncompressed using
shareware programs Winzip
(open in a new browser window).
Unzipped files contain a metadata file with
a .met or .xml extension. The metatdata is compliant with standards
set forth by the Federal Geographic Data Committee.
If software is needed to view the unzipped
files, a free copy of ArcExplorer may be obtained
ESRI Web site. ArcExplorer 2 may be used for multiple map and
GIS information sources on the Web.
Note: GIS information is
informational only and should NOT to be used for survey
or engineering work.
