Abstract:
 The Coast Guard Sectors are delineated in the description in the 33 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) for each Sector Boundary and Area of Responsibility where latitude and longitude coordinates, as well as county/state/national boundaries are included to describe the boundaries for each zone. In addition, whenever the Area of Responsibility boundary is over water, the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) shapefile is referenced for those occurrences. This layer displays the Coast Guard Sector Boundaries for the following sectors: Anchorage, Baltimore, Boston, Buffalo, Charleston, Columbia River, Corpus Christi, Delaware Bay, Detroit, Guam, Hampton Roads, Honolulu, Houston - Galveston, Humboldt Bay, Jacksonville, Juneau, Key West, Lake Michigan, Long Island Sound, Los Angeles - Long Beach, Lower Mississippi, Miami, Mobile, New Orleans, New York, North Bend, North Carolina, Northern New England, Ohio Valley, Puget Sound, San Diego, San Francisco, San Juan, Sault Sainte Marie, Southeastern New England, Saint Petersburg, and Upper Mississippi.

Purpose:
 The purpose of this layer is to provide the United States Coast Guard with a single map layer that includes the Coast Guard Sector Boundaries and Area of Responsibility.

Supplemental information:
 Not recommended for navigation. These unaltered data may not be redistributed without all of the elements of the metadata listed in the Supplemental Information section of this metadata document. It is recommended that third parties wishing to use these data obtain them from the Distributor listed in this metadata document. If these data are altered or incorporated into another dataset, they are not to be redistributed without also: altering the name of the dataset, including a Content Standards for Digital Geospatial Metadata (FGDC-STD-001-1998) compliant metadata file that describes the dataset and reflects the alteration steps that makes the new dataset different from this one, and citing this dataset in the metadata as a source for the altered dataset using the source citation specified below. If these digital data are used in the production of a report or in the compilation of a standalone printed map, then this dataset is to be cited in the report or on the map using the source citation specified below. The following source citation is to be used when citing this dataset: USCG - OSC Enterprise GIS Inventory Dataset 'Coast Guard Sectors source data, Geographic NAD83, USCG - OSC Enterprise GIS Users hereby agree to abide by the use and reproduction conditions specified above. By using the data described in these metadata, the user acknowledges that the terms and conditions of use have been read and that the user is bound by these criteria. If you are using this dataset as a shapefile, please be aware that it was converted from a Geodatabase. As a result, this shapefile may have attribution and metadata errors resulting from the conversion process. The following are known issues: null values may have been changed to 0s (zeros) or to blank values, numbers (including latitude and longitude) may have been rounded up or down, there may be issues with Unicode character strings, and time cannot be stored in a date field. Field names may have been truncated to no longer than 10 characters or completely changed, lengthy string attributes may have been truncated to 254 characters, and attribute columns may have been deleted. Shapefiles do not support coded domains and subtypes therefore the original file geodatabase attribution and metadata information for coded domains and subtypes could be incorrect or missing in the shapefile version. Please visit the following ESRI website for more information: caution-http://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/tool-reference/appendices/geoprocessing-considerations-for-Shapefile-output.htm
