The contours are from zero to -100m with a contour every 10 meters, a -101m to -500m with contours every 25meters, and -501m+ with contours every 100m until all contours had been created for the DEM utilized. The DEM utilized was the Global Multi-Resolution Topography (GMRT) Synthesis which is a multi-resolution gridded global Digital Elevation Model (DEM) that includes cleaned processed ship-based multibeam sonar data at their full spatial resolution (~100m in the deep sea). This dataset has been projected into World Mercator. 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. This feature class represents contours of elevation under the water's surface known as Bathymetry Contours. This feature class contains contours from zero to -100m with a contour every 10 meters, a -101m to -500m with contours every 25 meters, and -501m+ with contours every 100m until all contours had been created for the utilized DEM.

Data quality info: Data quality: Scope: Scope: Hierarchy level: Scope code: dataset Report: Quantitative attribute accuracy: Name of measure: Accuracy Evaluation method description: No formal attribute accuracy test was conducted. The attributes in this dataset are believed to be accurate. Result: missing Report: Absolute external positional accuracy: Name of measure: Horizontal Positional Accuracy Evaluation method description: Maximum scale of intended use is 1:80,000. Result: missing Report: Completeness commission: Name of measure: Completeness Report Evaluation method description: Spatial and attribute properties are believed to be complete, although attribute information has been simplified. Geometric thresholds from original data are preserved. No tests have been completed for exhaustiveness. Result: missing Report: Conceptual consistency: Name of measure: Conceptual Consistency Evaluation method description: These data are believed to be logically consistent. Geometry is topologically clean. During quality control, attributes were checked to ensure that they fell within the expected ranges or had expected/valid values. Text attribute values were checked for spelling and usage consistency. No topology tests were conducted. Result: missing Lineage: Lineage: Statement: missing Process step: Process step: Description: Merge the three contour data sets to make one Contours set for the America EEZ & dissolve based on the Contours interval. Utilize a shapefile of America & US Territories land areas only to erase sections of contours that might fall on land given the granularity of the Rasters. Call this contour set: USA_EEZContours_Clipped. Date and time: 2018-05-02T00:00:00 Process step: Process step: Description: Utilized the Smooth Line (Cartography) Tool with the PAEK algorithm to calculate a smoothed line that will not pass through the input line vertices at a .1 Decimal Degree smoothing tolerance & preserving endpoints for closed lines to create an enhanced cartographic product for viewing. Date and time: 2018-05-11T00:00:00 Process step: Process step: Description: Gather individual American Samoa .asc files, set proper projections for each file, merge American Samoa files to one Raster, project into Mercator. Utilize Raster to Polygon to create an exact area of the American Samoa Raster to cut out of EEZ_DEM contours. Utilize the contour tool (spatial analyst) & create three data sets, 1. zero to -100 creating a contour every 10 meters, 2. -101 to -500 with contours every 25meters, 3. -501+ with contours every 100m. Remove any contours that create that are not within the designated layer by using the select by attribute in the Attribute Table & selecting only the contours you want to keep, export the data as a new shapefile. Merge the three contour data sets to make one Contour set & dissolve based on the Contours interval, call layer American Samoa Contours. Date and time: 2018-05-03T00:00:00 Process step: Process step: Description: Download GRMT DEM of all USA & Territory areas to the EEZ & mosaic together to form one EEZ_DEM. Utilize ArcGIS spatial analyst - contour tool & create three data sets, 1. zero to -100 creating a contour every 10 meters, 2. -101 to -500 with contours every 25meters, 3. -501+ with contours every 100m. Remove any contours that are created that are not within the designated layers by using the select by attribute in the Attribute Table & selecting only the contours you want to keep, export the data as a new shapefile. Date and time: 2018-05-01T00:00:00 Process step: Process step: Description: From the USA_EEZContours_Clipped utilize the Erase tool using the American Samoa Raster Polygon. This will remove any of the contours that were created previously that are at a lower detail existing where the American Samoa Contours will exist. Merge the American Samoas Contours into the EEZ_DEM contours & Dissolve by Contour then name the resulting contour shapefile: Elevation_Bathymetry. Label all the features by contour with a mask for increased visibility, add scale range to not show when zoomed out past 1:15million (min scale).
