MaPP Marine Planning Portal

The MaPP marine plan portal, using the SeaSketch application, is a sophisticated planning tool that allows users to look at many different data layers together to learn more about the MaPP study area. The portal has more than 250 data layers including administrative boundaries, species, habitats and marine uses.

The portal is called a “decision-support tool” because it displays information that is used to support, or inform, discussions and decisions related to the implementation of marine spatial plans. These discussions include ways to avoid spatial conflicts between marine uses and activities, and how to maintain the ecological integrity of marine ecosystems.
