Pacific Marine National Monuments Mapping Tool

The Monument Science Program has launched a series of new web-based geographic information system (GIS) mapping tools for the Pacific Marine National Monuments. The collection of thematic online mapping tools highlight various Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center (PIFSC) objectives, including fisheries research, cetacean surveys, coral reef monitoring, benthic habitat mapping, oceanographic information and PIFSC research cruises. These data are distributed using a combination of ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS Server technologies. In addition to providing the online platform for viewing these data, the tools also include the ability to download data, access InPort metadata, perform data queries, and create printable maps and figures. PIFSC is partnering with NOAA Fisheries Pacific Islands Regional Office Monuments and the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument to customize the application by consolidating the individual thematic maps into a single interface that allows the user to choose which data types to display. We are also expanding the tool to additional regions within the U.S. Pacific Islands, adding new data for the existing Mariana region, expanding the capabilities of the tool to include printing features, and improving the data management workflow. We are currently seeking additional partnering opportunities and are undergoing long term planning. Please contact us if you are interested in collaborating.
