Habitats were identified through map analysis and aerial photograph interpretation. Habitats were digitized onscreen, using ArcGIS 10.0 software, over orthophoto images taken in spring 2009 obtained from the New York State GIS Clearinghouse. A GIS source file is available upon request.

This project has been funded by a grant from New York State Environmental Protection Fund through the Hudson River Estuary Program of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.
