Title: Matanuska-Susitna Borough Wetland mapping
Geospatial_Data_Presentation_Form: vector digital data
Online_Linkage: c:\mapping\kwf\matsu\matsucore2008wetlands.shp
Description:
Abstract:
Wetland boundaries were delineated at 1;24,000 & 1:18000 for use as a planning tool in the Matanuska-Susitna Borough. In 2007, wetland boundaries in the Core Area had been delineated by NWI using stereo-paired aerial photographs. Those boundaries were transferred using a stereoscope on a light table, to mlyar overlying orthophoto quarter-quads, with much additional interpretation. Interpretation involved using NRCS delineated hydric soils with greater than 85% polygon coverage, along with the author's experience. 132 sites were visited during summer 2007 for ground-truthing.
In 2008 wetlands were delineated over 2005 stereo-paired aerial photography using experience and NRCS soils mapping as a guide. The lines were transferred to frosted mylars over 24"x30" 1:18,000 2004/2005 USDA NRCS color DOQQ's (digital orthorectified quarter quads) transparency plots that also showed ArcView 9.2-generated tic marks. The mylars were digitized into a polygon shapefile by Resource Data, Inc. in Anchorage. The polygons were then assigned mapunits in ArcView. 442 polygons were visited in the field, where plant cover, soils and water chemistry data were collected. The shapefile was edited to reflect field findings. Both the 2007 Core area and the 2008 mapping area were combined into a single shapefile, adjoining polygon edges were edited and matched heads up in ArcView.
Purpose:
These data were created as a planning tool, not as any wetland jurisdictional determination.
Supplemental_Information:
From Resource Data, Inc.: Wetlands mylars were received from Mike Gracz and processed by RDI as follows. Scanned at 400dpi, registered to Mike's tics, vectorized in ArcScan closing off at Mike's digital boundaries. Polygons were created and cleaned in Arc/Info, QC'ed, and converted to a shapefile.

Title: Matanuska-Susitna Borough Wetlands
Geospatial_Data_Presentation_Form: polygon shapefile

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Wetland polygons were attributed with a classification system based on one developed for Kenai Peninsula Lowland wetlands. No formal accuracy assessment procedure was performed. About 20% of the polygons have been visited in the field.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
Polygons were created and cleaned in Arc/Info, QC'ed, and converted to a shapefile.
Completeness_Report:
Wetlands were delineated at a scale of 1:24,000 for the Core Area and 1:18,000 for the remaining area. All wetlands I could identify that are greater than about1 acre were included, along with smaller ones. Wetland delineation is to some degree subjective, especially when using only stereo photography and ground-truthing.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
No formal check. Many wetland boundaries are inherently difficult to delineate, even on-site.
