GIS Lookup: Detailed Data Layer Listing

Data Layer GraphicTitle: "Paddle Trails - Line" (2001)
Description: North Carolina Sea Grant and the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Division of Parks and Recreation, in cooperation with the NC Center for Geographic Information and Analysis, developed the digital geographic information system (GIS) Paddle Trails, Coastal Plain data to as part of an ongoing effort to inventory and publicize watertrails through DPR's trails programs. This data contains the trail locations and access points for the inventoried trails in the coastal plain of North Carolina. Other trails in the coastal plain and in other portions of the state are to be inventoried as resources allow. This data was created as part of the North Carolina Coastal Plain Paddle Trails Initiative, a private grant funded program with NC Sea Grant. This initiative consisted off multiple parts that ranged from a paddler's inventory to economic impact assessments. This effort has developed an understanding of how paddling and paddling related actions impact and interact with the environment, local establishment and infrastructure and can help guide efforts in the development of ecotourism.
