Beaches in Ecoregion 6e6 and 7e5

Two classes of beaches are distinguished, those with infrastructure and those without.

Beaches with infrastructure: open sandy beaches along the shore of a great lake, within approximately 200 meters of a structure.

Beaches without infrastructure: open sandy beaches along the shore of a great lake, not within 200 meters of a structure.

The Southern Ontario Land Resource Information System didn't digitize beaches. Beaches were digitized by Austin Troy from Google Earth.
