Baseline Data Layers

This project reviewed more than 50 different data layers from various sources in the Chesapeake Bay region.  In the end the analyses comprising the development of EVA utilized more than 35 different products.  Some layers have been value added.  Others have been combined.  EVA has been constructed to allow the user to visualize most base layers. This will help to highlight factors that contribute to the assignment of risk along a given shoreline segment.

Metadata, when available through the originator, can be viewed when using EVA by clicking on the layer name in the data layer list.    Since many of these data are licensed or were received with distribution restriction, they are not available through this website for download.   Consult the contact individual identified in the metadata.
