We have a team of staff who support offshore wind and other ocean planning efforts through two contracts with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. This team provides data development and management, web content management, and communication for the MarineCadastre.gov suite of products. Over several years, the team has produced, processed, and maintained nearly 300 data sets, developed web-based story maps, worked with partners to acquire and process new data, maintained and managed several online data viewers and processors, and provided hands-on technical assistance to users. In addition, the highly anticipated OceanReports tool received high levels of recognition from the White House and NOAA, for which the team received praise from the NOAA Administrator.

OceanReports allows users to draw a custom polygon to receive reports about the offshore space.
