Ocean Planning

Examples across the country of different organizations using MarineCadastre.gov. This joint (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and Bureau of Ocean Energy Management) initiative provides data to meet the needs of the offshore energy and marine planning communities.

Many coastal states have goals requiring a certain percentage of electricity to be supplied by renewable energy by a certain year. ARCADIS, an environmental consulting firm, is using MarineCadastre.gov as an authoritative source for data to screen large areas for offshore energy projects in preparation of environmental assessments or impact statements to help states meet these goals. #ocean #energy #GIS

The MarineCadastre.gov data helped in the screening of areas for offshore energy projects.

Traditional maps display ocean data in two dimensions, giving the impression the ocean is crowded. Learn how ocean data is actually 3-dimensional. #OceanPlanning #GIS

Coastal California is home to four major shipping ports so large container ships travel constantly through the region's national marine sanctuary waters and pose a threat to whales. Using MarineCadastre.gov shipping data, NOAA's Office of National Marine Sanctuaries determined areas where the shipping lanes could be altered to reduce the amount of whale and ship interactions.

Humpback Whale Breaching - There's a rumor that the reason whales breach is because they loose their grip on the water and fall out!

NOAA's National Marine Fisheries Service uses data from MarineCadastre.gov as the authoritative source for creating #GIS #fisheries regulatory boundaries.

Ocean planning is more than shipping lanes and wind speeds. Planners also need to know where people are using the ocean; where recreational fisheries, tourism, surfers, boaters, and conservation groups use the ocean. The Ocean Uses: California data set give you information on 27 separate uses of the ocean off the state of #California. #GIS #ocean #planning

A Wind Energy Area (WEA) is an offshore area that seems most suitable for wind energy development because of a lack of obvious conflicts with existing uses. The Bureau of #Ocean Energy Management designated WEAs to expedite the #offshore #wind #energy planning process. Learn more and find the data at MarineCadastre.gov. #GIS #data

Clever MIT floating wind turbines can store power for when the wind doesnt blow

Ocean disposal sites are used for burials at sea, dredged material management, fish dumping, and vessel disposal. The Environmental Protection Agency Alaska Operations Office uses the MarineCadastre.gov National Viewer to map ocean disposal sites, measure distances, estimate water depths, and display information on endangered species and fish habitat. #ocean #GIS #oceanplanning.

Did you know that ship tracking data from MarineCadastre.gov are being used along the West Coast (Los Angeles, Long Beach, and San Diego, California) for everything from mapping vessel noise to assisting a ship-strike working group to providing context for marine mammal density data? #ocean planning #marine mammals

The Atlantic Coast Port Access Route Study is using data and tools available on MarineCadastre.gov to study potential navigational safety and make recommendations based on ship traffic as to which areas would make suitable wind energy areas. (Report http://www.uscg.mil/lantarea/acpars/)

Ocean planners in North Carolina created the North Carolina Task Force to work on siting offshore wind energy with the hopes for avoiding ocean conflict. MarineCadastre.gov created a mashup with relevant #ocean #data to save planners time and have everything they needed in one place.

Just like wind energy, wave energy is another offshore renewable energy option. Data from the MarineCadastre.gov registry shows planners where the best waves are to harness the most energy. Learn more about the data set before using it. #GIS #Ocean #OceanPlanning #WaveEnergy

Static maps don't allow users to interact with data. When The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management released their proposed plan for oil and gas leasings from 2012-2017, they wanted users to be able to interact with the data and make educated comments. They created maps using MarineCadastre.gov data and ArcGIS online for this purpose.

Ocean planning is more than just renewable energy. Offshore oil and gas leases need data to find the best location, too. MarineCadastre.gov has data for active and historical leases, areas excluded from scoping, and critical habitats for a variety of species in Alaska. #OceanPlanning #OilandGas #Alaska
