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. 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).
