Description:
Abstract:
Coral reef and artificial reef location shape files and accompanying table files for reefs located off shore of Broward County, Florida. Accompanying "attribute" tables provide information on artificial reef type, date of creation, and associated information. It is recommended that users be familiar with Arcview and compatible software in order to utilize these files. The shape files and associated files, when viewed through Arcview, are comprised of three "themes" or groups: 1) Broward County, FL, shoreline; 2) Offshore natural reefs; 3) Locations of artificial reefs. These files were archived at the National Oceanographic Data Center under NODC Accession # 0000244
Purpose:
These shape files provide location, identification, depth, and additional information on the artificial reefs offshore Broward County, Florida.
Supplemental_Information:
Arcview or compatible program required to view the shape files; table files in .dbf format. Two of the files (artreef.dbf and reef.dbf) were exported at the NODC as blank-delimited ASCII files (artreef_NODCver.txt and reef_NODCver.txt) from dBaseIV to aid in archival ONLY. It is strongly recommended that users view these files through Arcview and compatible software. NODC Accession # 0000244
