Data Set Description: This layer contains permitted routes for cargo transport, along with the locations of the terminal gates.

  • Gate_No.--lists the gate ID number
  • Ship_Co.--lists all the shipping companies that use the corresponding terminal gate.

Data Source History: Jake Schweitzer, In Situ Mapping, contacted Dave Adams, Port of Oakland, and was given paper maps and data describing the locations of harbors and marinas. Jake digitized this data in ArcEdit using the digital orthophoto as a reference (the original maps were only reference quality, and were too inaccurate to support standard scan-and-digitize routines).

Quality Check: No quality control procedures performed to date.
