Monitoring - 2006 Report - Calculation of 2006 SAV Area
ArcInfo SAV coverages in a Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) Zone
18 projection were used to calculate area in square meters for all SAV
beds. These areas are summarized by USGS 7.5 minute quadrangle, Chesapeake
Bay Program and Delmarva Peninsula coastal bay segments, and by zone in tables. Segment and zone totals were calculated using an
overlay operation of segment and zone regions on the SAV beds.
