Description Spatial Attributes

Theme: Erosion Rate, Setback Factors, Erosion

These data represent blocked 1997  Oceanfront Setback Factors (Results from the 1997 Erosion Rate Update Study).  These polygons DO NOT represent the actual Ocean Erodible Area (OEA) boundaries as these landward limits are dynamic and can potentially change from day-to-day; the landward limit of these polygons are arbitrary.  The OEA associated with each polygon is a distance to be measured from a vegetation line to be determined by NC DCM staff or authorized local permitting official (LPO).
