The Choptank River Complex, including the tidal Choptank and Little Choptank Rivers on Maryland’s Eastern Shore and watershed extending into Delaware, has been selected as a Habitat Focus Area under NOAA’s Habitat Blueprint Program. To support the management, conservation, and restoration objectives, NOAA’s National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS) has developed a Digital Atlas of the Choptank Habitat Focus Area The Digital Atlas can be used as a tool for conservation planning, resource analysis, data exploration, and other purposes. The Digital Atlas consists of three components:
• Geodatabase of existing relevant data sets from NOAA and partner organizations
• Interactive web portal for mapping and displaying relevant data sets
• Baseline status report published as a NOAA Technical Memorandum.
The information presented in all three components are organized into seven themes: Land Cover, Shoreline Composition, Water Quality, Benthic Index of Biotic Integrity, Submerged Aquatic Vegetation, Fish, and Oysters. For each theme, pertinent data sets from partner organizations have been processed, summarized, and scaled to be used in the web mapping portal.
