Acknowledgment of the U.S. Geological Survey, 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 U.S. Geological Survey 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 produce highly detailed and accurate digital elevation maps of a portion of the Mobile-Tensaw Delta region and Three Mile Creek in Alabama for use as a management tool for evaluating how water levels, landform structure, and habitat types interact within the survey area, and how changes in the water flow and elevation affect available stream areas, wetlands, and bottom woodland habitat during seasonal formative periods critical to fish and wildlife production.
Are there legal restrictions on access or use of the data?
