OPAREA boundaries are formally established by national designation and by international treaty for national defense training purposes, and allow for specific exercises and training events to be coordinated with other federal, state, and local agencies, and also the general public, as in Notices to Mariners (NOTMARS). Includes the OPAREA, range complex boundaries and study areas.
          
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. This data was derived from the Navy Common Operating Picture data which was received via email on December 6, 2018. Any questions about access to or the content of the data should be directed to the Navy at eims_usersupport@navy.mil.
          
This data is compliant with Spatial Data Standards for Facilities, Infrastructure, and Environment (SDSFIE) Version 2.6. Purpose: This data layer was created to assist the Navy in decision making and for planning purposes.

Installation_ID's were attributed with prefix value for operating area. E.g. JAX represents Jacksonville OPAREA. BOS represents Boston OPAREA.
          
All Primary Keys contain unique values. Primary Key was attributed by concatenating the Installation_ID prefix value with the Feat_Name or Feat_Description value.
          
Feature name and feature description, and data source values were attributed when possible. The data source field contains the name of the data source used in creating the feature class.
