Coastal and Joint Waters Map Now Available on Mobile Website
RALEIGH, N.C. (June 1, 2012) — The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission now has available on its mobile website, www.ncwildlife.org/mobile.aspx, a map outlining the joint and coastal water boundaries along the coast.
Data for the maps were produced using the N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries’ Geographic Information System Program. These maps were produced for illustrative purposes as a general guide, and anglers should be aware that the accuracy of GPS locators on mobile devices varies. The exact location of the boundary lines between all of the Inland, Joint and Coastal waters are defined by points of latitude and longitude in rules of the N.C. Marine Fisheries Commission and are prominently marked by metal signs adjacent to the affected waters.
Mobile-device users accessing the Commission’s full website, www.ncwildlife.org, will be redirected automatically to the mobile site, www.ncwildlife.org/mobile.aspx. The map is located under the “Maps” tab on the home page.
