The data sets below have been included with this CD-ROM product for the user's convenience. Additional data sets, such as those described in the Spatial Data Library section of the Web site, can be obtained through the Bureau of Statistics and Plans. All data sets available on this page are provided in ESRI's Shapefile format.

Please note that these data sets may be updated at a future date. Any updates will be posted on this Web site. Updated data sets can also be obtained by contacting the Guam Bureau of Statistics of Plans. To access the benthic habitat data produced by NOAA's Biogeographic Team that was used to develop the Guam Coastal Atlas benthic habitat data, please visit their Web site at http://ccma.nos.noaa.gov/about/ biogeography/.

Benthic Habitat Data Accuracy Statement: Although the benthic habitat data provided with this product were derived in part from benthic habitat data originally developed by the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS) Biogeography Team, it was not subject to review by NOAA. At the time of this product's original release (June 2006), an accuracy assessment for the benthic habitat data had not been performed; thus, the accuracy of the data cannot be confirmed. The lack of an accuracy assessment limits the use of the data in certain research and planning activities. An accuracy assessment will be performed as soon as resources become available. Please check the Guam Coastal Atlas Web site at http://www.uog.edu/marinelab/coastal.atlas/ for the results of any future accuracy assessment as well as updated benthic habitat maps and GIS data.
