Summary

The data were created in support of the MARIS Technical Center (MTC) framework data development effort. This data has been updated several times to increase accuracy and reliability of data. The 2015 updates represent federal delineations of the MS Gulf Coast boundary.


Description

Original GIS polygon dataset derived from the 1990 Census Bureau's TIGER files. The original scale of the data is 1:100,000 and covers the entire state of Mississippi. Using coding from the TIGER files, this dataset includes only county boundaries. . *** Data was updated in April 2007 using 1:24,000 USGS Digital Raster Graphics. ** Gulf Coastal Boundary was updated in May 2015 by MARIS staff using the guidance of MDEQ Office of Geology's Mississippi/Louisiana border based using 1906 Supreme Court decision, MDEQ’s Offshore Mineral Lease map, and the US Bureau of Ocean Energy, Mapping and Boundary Branch's Submerged Lands Act 2011 Boundary.

LINEAGE STATEMENT

The data was originally acquired using 1990 Census TIGER lines. The data was updated by MARIS staff using 1:24,000 DRGS. Additional clarification was made using BOEM MS/AL Submerged Lands Act Boundary and MDEQ - MS/LA tidal leases boundaries (see Process Steps).


PROCESS STEP

WHEN THE PROCESS OCCURRED 2011-07-01 00:00:00

DESCRIPTION

The following is a process document by MDEQ- Office of Geology on their development of the MS/LA border.


The Mississippi Louisiana Boundary 2/26/10 Barbara Yassin


The Mississippi state boundary, starting at the mouth of the Pearl River going east to where it meets the Federal boundary, was generated based on the following:


The 1906 Supreme Court decision that describes the Mississippi – Louisiana boundary and where it will be permanently buoyed and delineated on a map “made up of the parts of charts Nos. 190 and 191 of the U.S Coast and Geodetic Survey” The Mylar copy of the combined charts is T-sheet # 2954a. It was georectified, the buoy coordinates were mapped and the boundary line to the last marked buoy was digitized.


From the last buoy, running east to the federal boundary, the adopted 1969 Mississippi Sound Lease Block Map was georectified and digitized. It stays consistent with what the Office of Geology has historically recognized and used previously.


In more detail:

The lease block map is the result of the “Mississippi Code of 1972, 29-7-3 Lease of state lands for minerals; …” where it states, “The Department of Environmental Quality is authorized to employ competent engineering personnel to survey the territorial waters of this state in the Mississippi Sound and the Gulf of Mexico and to prepare a map or plat of such territorial waters, …. The commission is authorized to adopt such survey, plat or map for leasing of such submerged lands for mineral development; and such leases may, after the adoption of such plat or map, be made by reference to the map or plat, which shall be on permanent file with the commission and a copy thereof on file in the Office of the State Oil and Gas Board.”


This map was adopted by a commission in 1969. Then in 2004 Mississippi Senate bill no. 2853 added:

The commission may only offer for lease the state-owned lands in Blocks 40, 41, 42, 43, 63, 64 and 66 through 98, inclusive, as shown on the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality Bureau of Geology Plat of Lease Blocks (Open File Report 151) on terms and conditions and for a length of time as determined by the commission.

To create 151 in digital form, I scanned the 1969 lease block map and it was georectified. I displayed it in 1927 state plane east zone and checked the coordinates displayed on the gradicule lines for accuracy.


Going east, I used snapping to connect the end of the arcs and using the 1969 boundary, digitized the Mississippi boundary from the last 1909 buoy to the federal- state boundary.


The federal-state boundary was downloaded from Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM), Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE): http://www.data.bsee.gov/homepg/data_center/mapping/geographic_mapping.asp This Fed/State boundary delineates the state seaward boundary for the Gulf of Mexico from the Submerged Lands Act.


RATIONALE

It stays consistent with what the Office of Geology has historically recognized and used previously for a boundary. It is also used in the 2007 Gulf Regional base mapping MDEM project.


PROCESS STEP

WHEN THE PROCESS OCCURRED 2015-05-20 00:00:00

DESCRIPTION

MARIS staff used the original stbnd shapefile as a starting point. In the background was the BOEM Submerged Lands Act Boundary and the MDEQ Louisiana/ Mississippi border. Line types/colors for the background data were chosen to allow the edited stbnd layer to be drawn over the base information. Editing was performed at 1:1,500 scale ensuring a very tight match. Vertices of stbnd were moved along the Coastal boundaries to snap to the BOEM data and the MDEQ background line data. This was performed across the entire MS Gulf Coast region May 20, 2015.


RATIONALE

To ensure the MARIS stbnd layer would match the official federal government state boundaries along the Gulf Coast of Mississippi.
