Coastal and Ocean Geospatial Planning Tool

 

Florida's Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has developed a coastal and ocean geospatial interactive web-based mapping tool which can be utilized for Marine Spatial Planning (MSP). The tool is in the prototype phase but houses GIS data that was gathered from several sources including DEP, FWC, NOAA, USGS, and others.

This tool is a joint effort between DEP and FWC which builds off of efforts by the Florida Oceans and Coastal Council. DEP will continue to expand the data available in this tool and add enhanced functionality. Multi-agency data sharing efforts will utilize technologies such as web services to ensure data accuracy and freshness.

If you are interested in submitting your data for inclusion into the prototype, please contact Becky Prado at rebecca.prado@dep.state.fl.us.
