Function: Online function code: download Role: inapplicable Presentation form: Presentation form code: mapDigital Abstract: Unexploded ordnances (UXO) are explosive weapons (bombs, bullets, shells, grenades, mines, etc.) that did not explode when they were employed and still pose a risk of detonation. Ocean disposal of munitions was an accepted international practice until 1970, when it was prohibited the Department of Defense. In 1972 Congress also passed the Marine Protection, Research, and Sanctuaries Act banning ocean disposal of munitions and other pollutants. This dataset represents known or possible individual or tightly grouped unexploded ordnances on the ocean floor. This is NOT a complete collection of unexploded ordnances on the seafloor, nor are the locations considered to be accurate. Two related datasets should be viewed in tandem: Unexploded Ordnance Areas displays known or possible former explosive dumping areas and Formerly Used Defense Sites (FUDS) displays areas identified by the United States Army Corps of Engineers where unexploded ordnances may exist. 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. NOAA ENC Direct to GIS Internet Mapping Service is designed to allow for the visualization, querying and downloading of NOAA's Electronic Navigational Chart's (NOAA ENC) data in common Geographic Information System (GIS) formats.

Data quality info: Data quality: Scope: Scope: Hierarchy level: Scope code: dataset Report: Quantitative attribute accuracy: Name of measure: Accuracy Evaluation method description: The attributes in this dataset are believed to be accurate. The NOAA ENC Direct to GIS data is derived from NOAA ENC's which conforms to the International Hydrographic Organization Transfer Standard for Digital Hydrographic Data, Special Publication S-57, ENC Product Specification Edition 2.0. 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. The NOAA ENC Direct to GIS data is derived from data that conforms to the International Hydrographic Organization Transfer Standard for Digital Hydrographic Data, Special Publication S-57, ENC Product Specification Edition 2.0. 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. NOAA ENC Direct to GIS data represents current coverage of all ENC Charts. As new NOAA ENCs and NOAA ENC editions are created they will be added to the NOAA ENC Direct to GIS data on the first of every month. 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. The NOAA ENC Direct data is derived from NOAA ENC's which conforms to the International Hydrographic Organization Transfer Standard for Digital Hydrographic Data, Special Publication S-57, ENC Product Specification Edition 2.0. NOAA ENC Direct to GIS data has added generalized nautical chart symbology to aid in the visualization of this data. Result: missing Lineage: Lineage: Statement: missing Process step: Process step: Description: Delete all extraneous fields then append attributed features into final schema to ensure the original NOAA_UXO schema is preserved. Date and time: 2018-05-07T00:00:00 Process step: Process step: Description: Download polygon ENC_DIRECT_DATASETS. Merge the point files into a single feature class and merge the area files into a single feature class. Extract all point and polygon features that intersect the US_EEZ boundary, then project these layers into WGS 1984 World Mercator. Date and time: 2018-05-07T00:00:00 Process step: Process step: Description: Reading the attribute tables of each feature class, delete any features with no mention of unexploded items or explosive weapons. Delete features that are duplicates. Visually confirm and adjust size, placement, and description of each feature. Compare between all layers, removing duplicates, and compare to NOAA_RNC imagery as a guide to determine which polygon features to convert to point as well as to update attributes in the layers. Clip the resulting features to the FederalAndStateWaters shoreline, check geometry, and project data into WGS 1984 World Mercator.
