GIS and Metadata Records

Data Set Name Description Files
Everglades Depth Estimation Network (EDEN) Digital Ground Elevation Model Ground elevation data for the greater Everglades and the digital ground elevation models (DEM) derived from them form the foundation for all EDEN water depth and associated ecological/hydrologic modeling.

This DEM was produced using the version HAED_v01 of the HAED, all available aerial height finder (AHF) data points posted to the SOFIA website as of October 2007.

Please note: The grid used to break up the EDEN area into equal-sized rectangles ("cells") is at a 400m by 400m resolution. While previous releases of the EDEN DEM were produced at a resolution of 60m by 60m to facillitate satellite-based research, this DEM was produced at 400m by 400m resolution and positioned to match the spatial referencing of the EDEN grid.

Metadata
Everglades Depth Estimation Network (EDEN) Water Surfaces Spatially continuous interpolation of water surface across the greater Everglades is generated for daily median values of the water level gages for the EDEN network beginning January 1, 2000. Surfaces are recorded as elevation in centimeters relative to North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD 88). NetCDF

Metadata
High Accuracy Elevation Data High accuracy elevation data files are available in the same 7.5- by 7.5-minute coverages as USGS quadrangles. The elevation data is collected on a 400 by 400 meter grid. Data

Soils Maps for Collier County The data sets consist of two files, an ARC/INFO shape file with associated files and an ARC/INFO export file, of a composite of soil maps for Collier County, Florida issued by the Soil Conservation Service in March, 1954. The data is at 1:40,000 scale. Data
Metadata
Soils Maps for Miami-Dade County The data sets consist of two files, an ARC/INFO shape file with associated files and an export file, of a composite of soil maps for Miami-Dade County, Florida issued by the Soil Conservation Service in April, 1958. The data is at 1:40,000 scale. Data

Metadata
Historical Aerial Photography for the Greater Everglades of South Florida: The 1940, 1:40,000 Photoset The historic aerial photographs of the Everglades show conditions of land cover change at intervals throughout the 20th century. As each photograph in the set was cataloged in the archives database, information about its identity, content and condition were recorded along with general data, when available, about the camera and flight. Mosaics of the scanned imagery were also scanned, when available, or constructed if necessary. These mosaics were georeferenced and used to develop shapefiles of flight lines and to calculate approximate center points of the photographs (xy coordinates). The center point coordinates were added as attributes to the archive database. A database query provided a table that was converted to a shapefile of center point coordinates and photograph attributes Data
Metadata
Impact of Anthropogenic Development on Coastal Ground-Water Hydrology in Southeastern Florida, 1900-2000 Zip files contain all of the ARC/INFO data layers used to create all of the illustrations within Circular 1275, "Impact of Anthropogenic Development on Coastal Ground-Water Hydrology in Southeastern Florida, 1900-2000." All files are ARC/INFO 1:1000,000 scale coverages. Contents include Ag-Landuse/Agricultural Landuse, Base Coverages for Study Area, Canals, Potentiometric, Saltwater-Intrusion, and Wateruse. Data

Florida Bay Bottom Types The maps show the bottom types for Florida Bay that resulted from site surveys and boat transects (summer 1996-January 1997) compared with aerial photographs (December 1994-January 1995) and SPOT satellite imagery (1987). Data

South Florida Satellite Image Maps These maps are composite images of spectral bands 3 (630-690 nanometers, red), 4 (775-900 nanometers,near-infrared), and 5 (1,550-1750 nanometers, middle-infrared) and the new panchromatic band (520-900, green to near-infrared) acquired by the Landsat 7 enhanced thematic mapper (ETM) sensor on February 05, 2000.

Metadata: Northern Section, Southern Section
Vegetation Map for Southern Inland and Coastal Systems (SICS) Area Twenty land-cover classes, derived from 1997 Landsat Thematic Mapper imagery, were subsequently combined into seven vegetation classes and one water class using field information on vegetative composition and structure as well as extensive ground-truth observations in order to develop the vegetative map. The seven vegetation classes are: sawgrass, sawgrass/bunchgrass, sawgrass/rush, rush/other, evergreen, mangrove/Buttonwood, and mangrove/water. Data
