Item Identification

Title: Military Submarine Transit Lanes: Atlantic / Gulf of Mexico
Short Name: Military Submarine Transit Lanes
Abstract:

Submarine transit lanes are areas where submarines may navigate underwater, including transit corridors designated for submarine travel. The MarineCadastre.gov team worked with the Navy to provide this data, which is a subset of the Navy's Common Operating Picture, for ocean planning purposes.

Purpose:

To support coastal and ocean planning and other activities pursuant to the Energy Policy Act, Coastal Zone Management Act, Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, National Environmental Policy Act, Rivers and Harbors Act and the Submerged Lands Act.

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 719794
Description:

1. Go to Navy EIMS and login, download latest COP_Atlantic_GOMEX_11212017.zip

2. Unzip files, find and copy the feature class within the "military_operations" feature dataset named "training_area" into a new file geodatabase.

3. Rename file to "MilitarySinkExerciseAreasAtlanticGulfofMexico".

4. Create alias for layer name: Military Sink Exercise Areas: Atlantic / Gulf of Mexico.

5. Bring layer into Arc and hide fields which contain no information.

4. Check geometry and project data into WGS 1984 Auxiliary Sphere.

5. Export metadata XML and tailor to include minor edits and distribution information for NOAA Office for Coastal Management. Included having to add in attribute definitions as these were missing.
