Acknowledgment of the USGS St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center, as a data source would be appreciated in products developed from these data, and such acknowledgment as is standard for citation and legal practices for data source is expected. Sharing of new data layers developed directly from these data would also be appreciated by the USGS staff. Users should be aware that comparisons with other datasets for the same area from other time periods may be inaccurate due to inconsistencies resulting from changes in photointerpretation, mapping conventions, and digital processes over time. These data are not legal documents and are not to be used as such.
The purpose of this project was to provide highly detailed and accurate elevation data of coastal parks and barrier islands, post-Hurricane Katrina (August 2005 hurricane), for use as a management tool and to make these data available to natural-resource managers and research scientists. To ensure that St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center (SPCMSC) data management protocols were followed, this survey was assigned a USGS field activity number (FAN), 08LTS01. Additional survey and data details are available at https://cmgds.marine.usgs.gov/fan_info.php?fan=08LTS01.
