  1. Gulf of Mexico AllianceMaster Mapping Plan

  2. What do we mean by “mapping”? • Elevation: Topography, Bathymetry, Topo/Bathy, Beach Profiles and Ground Truth • Imagery and Basemaps: RGB Orthophotos, Multispectral and Hyperspectral Imagery, Underwater Photos and Video • Environment and Conservation: Classification, Landcover, SAV, Coral and Oyster Reefs, Wetlands, Fish Habitat, Bioregions, T/E and Invasive Species, and Restoration and Conservation • Geological and Geophysical: Marine Geology • Oceans and Coasts: Shoreline • Climate Change: Sea Level Rise, Storm Protection and Resiliency

  3. What are we trying to do? Create a Gulf of Mexico Master Mapping Plan that • Captures all the requirements for spatial data and information products used by engineers, scientists, resource managers, planners, decision-makers, and emergency responders in the Gulf of Mexico Region • Identifies upcoming mapping activities by the breadth of federal, state, and local agencies, and academia collecting these types of data or generating these information products • Finds the gaps and develops a strategy to fill them in a resource- neutral or resource-depleted environment What are we not doing Collecting any data Inventorying existing data Oceanographic observations

  4. Important components • Base data layers • Geographic extent • Temporal resolution (routine and episodic) • Derived products • Specifications (spatial resolution and accuracy) • Gap analysis • Fiscal collaboration mechanisms • Capability and capacity for mapping by federal, state, and local agencies and academia

  5. Final products? • Gulf of Mexico Master Mapping Plan document • A web-based tool that geographically displays: • Mapping requirements • Upcoming mapping activities

  6. Why is it worth the effort? With visibility of all Gulf of Mexico mapping requirements and mapping activities we can identify opportunities for collaboration and standardization: • On data collection • On data processing • On product generation For efficient use of our ever-dwindling mapping resources

  7. Last year’s activities Identified mapping requirements for the Gulf by reviewing • Results of prior mapping requirements workshops • Existing mapping requirements documents • Results of “Gulf GAME” on-line survey collaboration • Websites documenting agency/program requirements for mapping

  12. Relationship to the national plan The Ocean and Coastal Mapping Integration Act calls for development of a coordinated and comprehensive Federal ocean and coastal mapping plan The Gulf of Mexico Master Mapping Plan will be one avenue for Gulf states to provide input to the national plan
