GIS Data

GIS Map Welcome! OCNMS builds and maintains GIS data sets, conducts projects using spatial data, and creates GIS-based maps to support sanctuary management, resource protection, outreach, and science. These GIS data describe the diverse natural and cultural environment of the coast and marine environment.

The sanctuary uses ESRI® ArcInfo and ArcView GIS software. Experienced GIS users who are familiar with GIS terminology and standards can download zipped shapefiles and rasters. If you are new to GIS, you can learn more at the Sanctuary Integrated Monitoring Network website or ESRI. Many of these GIS data layers are also available as zipped KML files for use in Google Earth, or for viewing and downloading as an image.

All OCNMS GIS data are provided in the projection: NAD 83 UTM 10, units in meters.

If you can't find the data that you are searching for, please email Nancy.Wright@noaa.gov.
