Description:
Abstract:
Shipping Safety Fairways: A lane or corridor in which no artificial island or fixed structure, whether temporary or permanent, will be permitted. Temporary underwater obstacles may be permitted under certain conditions described for specific areas in Subpart B. Aids to navigation approved by the U.S. Coast Guard may be established in a fairway.
Traffic Seperation Zones: A designated routing measure which is aimed at the separation of opposing streams of traffic by appropriate means and by the establishment of traffic lanes.
Traffic Lanes: An area within defined limits in which specific traffic flow is established. Designates traffic areas to provide access routes for vessels proceeding to and from U.S. ports.
Precautionary Areas:A routing measure comprising an area within defined limits where ships must navigate with particular caution
Mandatory Ship Reporting Zones for the Protection of Right Whales: Two mandatory ship reporting systems for the protection of the endangered northern right whale (also known as the North Atlantic right whale). These two systems are designated for certain areas of the East Coast of the United States.

Data_Quality_Information:
Logical_Consistency_Report:
The following tests were run for the data: The layer tolerance was checked to be 0.1 meters. The resolution value was checked to ensure it is 0.01 meters. The "officialDescription" and "authority" values were checked to ensure they were in the defined domain. The Annotion and Line Symbology were checked to make sure each was populated and representative of the data. The extent of the geometry was checked to make sure the coordinate values fell within the designated *CRS*. Within the geometry the Minimum, Maximum and Mean "Shape_Length" values were sorted by officialDescription value and these values were examined for outliers.
Completeness_Report:
Data set is complete and accurate as possible from given sources.
