National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) – Office of Response and Restoration – ESI Maps and GIS Data

On this page, you can download free Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) maps and data in a variety of formats:

  • PDF (Portable Document Format) files.
  • Geodatabase format with an ArcMap map document (.mxd). (The date following each geodatabase link shows when modifications were made to the data tables and/or map document only. The underlying data were collected circa the atlas publication date shown in bold.) This is the only GIS format that is modified after the original data publication. We’ve developed several ESI Tools to help you work with the geodatabase files.
  • Metadata is provided for all ESI data distributed in a GIS format. Available formats vary based on the date of publication. InPort is the current NOAA metadata repository, and newer metadata is only available in this format. In cases where metadata is provided in other formats, it may contain some additional information that did not get transferred to InPort”.
