Description: Lake St. Clair Shoreline
The shoreline delineation used for this project was taken from medium-resolution vector data originally developed from aerial photography by Environment Canada and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The two datasets were compiled by NOAA’s Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory, then rendered as a single basin-wide coverage by the Great Lakes Commission before being incorporated into this project. The aerial photography used to develop the linework dates from the late 1980’s, so certain shoreline features may have changed. Also, the source data were created at several map scales, so level of detail is not consistent.
