Aquatic Resource Area Summary Polygon (Spatial View)

Coordinate system: 4269 - "NAD83"

Abstract:

This data set is a polygon feature that can be used to describe the physical characteristics and fish species of lakes, rivers, or streams. This data set can also be used to link to more detailed external fish survey information for that waterbody.

Aquatic Resource Area (ARA) Polygon (and ARA Line) spatially represent ARA Summary via a unique ID. Since spatial information does not exist for ARA Summary, edits can only be made to attribute information. The ARA Line and ARA Summary data classes can be downloaded from the Portal via the following records:

  • Aquatic Resource Area Summary Line (Spatial View)
  • Aquatic Resource Area Summary
  • The information in ARA Summary is based on a combination of many sources, including ARA Survey Point information. A body of water should have one record containing ARA summary information and may have zero to many ARA Survey Point data locations, the data of which may have been rolled up into the ARA Summary information. The ARA Summary and Survey Point layers are linked through use of the 'ARA Identifier' attribute. The ARA Survey Point data class can be downloaded from the Portal via the following record:

  • Aquatic Resource Area Survey Point
  • Supplementary tables can be used and are available for download from the additional documentation section.
