Download Link: http://data.nconemap.gov/downloads/vector/fshcmntysts.zip
Abstract: The North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Division of Water Quality,with funding from the NC Clean Water Management Trust Fund and in cooperation with the NC Center for Geographic Information and Analysis, developed the digital fish community sampling data to enhance water quality assessment & plan review of Trust Fund project applications. This file identifies points where fish community sampling has been done.
Purpose: These data were created to assist governmental agencies and others in making resource management decisions through use of a Geographic Information System (GIS).
Supplemental Information: system filename : fcss approx file size = 0.06 mb Revisions and updates to this layer include: 2) filename: fcr1100 In September, 2000, CGIA received a spreadsheet from DWQ that listed fish community sampling sites. This list corrected some latitude and longitude values from the original dataset and added several stations sampled between Sept 1998 and Sept 2000. The name of this layer was changed from Fish Community Ratings to Fish Community Sampling Sites with the permission of DWQ because this layer does not contains water quality ratings at this time. 1) filename: fcr600 The released version date was June 15, 2000. The original data was received and processed September 1998. Corrections to lat/longs were made in October 1998. Width of county attribute was corrected June 2000.
