Description: The coastal boundary was originally created as a set of maps at a scale of 1:48000. This digital representation has been created from the original paper copies through "heads-up" digitizing using geographic information software and the digital NYSDOT planimetric quadrangles at a scale of 1:24000. The official coastal boundary is a written description contained in the federally approved New York State Coastal Management Program, LIS CMP, and applicable LWRPs. This dataset was created to illustrate the waterward extent of New York's coastal boundary, which extends 3 miles into open ocean, to shared state lines in Long Island Sound and the New York Bight and to the International boundary in the Great Lakes, Niagara and St. Lawrence Rivers. Generally, the inland boundary is approximately 1,000 feet from the shoreline following well-defined features such as roads, railroads or shorelines as described in the CMP FEIS, unless otherwise indicated. Where necessary this boundary extends inland to include major state owned lands and facilities and electic power generation facilities which abut on the shoreline, major coastal recreational areas, significant agricultural lands, significant coastal habitats, scenic viewsheds of State or national significance, major historic or coastal dependent industrial areas, and the 100 year flood plain. In urbanized and other developed locations along the coast, the landward boundary is approximately 500 feet from the shoreline or less than 500 feet at locations where a major roadway or railway line runs parallel to the shoreline. The seaward boundary of New York State's coastal area includes all coastal waters within its territorial jurisdiction.
