Description:
Abstract:
Washington marine (saltwater) shorelines including Puget Sound, Hood Canal, the Strait of Juan de Fuca, and the Pacific coastline. Also includes those portions of Washington's marine shorelines that are designated "Shorelines of State-wide Significance" by the Shoreline Management Act, Chapter 90.58
Purpose:
Intended as a cartographic background dataset for GIS coastal projects. Also, shows the area of the marine (saltwater) shorelines in Washington State that fall under the Shoreline Management Act.
Supplemental_Information:
Washington shoreline is from the original Washington Department of Natural Resources, data96 (dataset), dissolved and edited to form a regional saltwater shoreline. Washington coastal shoreline was edited and digitized from USGS 7½ minute digital quads and arcs provided by the Southwest Washington Coastal Erosion Study.

BC shoreline is 1:50k data obtained from BC Ministry of Environment.

Oregon shoreline is 1:100k data obtained from Oregon Geospatial Data Clearinghouse (OGDC), formerly known as the State Service Center for GIS (SSCGIS).

20010830 - Added item SMA_CD to the arc attribute table (AAT) to show those marine "Shorelines of State-wide Significance" as designated by the Shoreline Management Act, Chapter 90.58 RCW.

20050805 - Added item SHORE_TYPE to the arc attribute table to depict shoreline arc type, Puget Sound, Pacific Coast, etc.

Process_Description:
Washington shoreline from original Washington Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) data96. It was dissolved and edited to form a regional saltwater shoreline. Subsequent coastal shoreline updates were edited and digitized from USGS 7.5 minute digital quads and arcs as provided by the Southwest Washington Coastal Erosion Study.

The British Columbia shoreline is 1:50,000 data obtained from the BC Ministry of Environment.

The Oregon shoreline is 1:100k data obtained from Oregon Geospatial Data Clearinghouse (OGDC), formerly known as the State Service Center for GIS (SSCGIS).

20010830 - Added item, sma_cd, to the arc attribute tabte (AAT) to show where the area of jurisdiction for the Shoreline Management Act, Chapter 90.58 RCW.

20050805 - Added item, shore_type, to the arc attribute table to code type of shoreline arc.
