MethodologyA polygon coverage was created from several different sources. State boundaries from Maine to Connecticut at 1:25,000 were combined to form a ‘New England' land coverage for basic reference and coastline. Existing territorial lines were combined as well as bathymetric and latitude-longitude lines to complete the polygons.
AttributesThe polygon attribute table contains the following fields:
AREA_ID - Statistical Area ID or Number
POUNDS97 - Lobsters Harvested in pounds for specific year
MaintenanceMassGIS is maintaining the datalayer. Updates will be made as yearly statistics become available from DMF.
