Overview

This online mapping tool contains interactive web apps designed to visualize ecosystem services, including natural coastal protection, blue carbon, fisheries, recreation and tourism, and ecosystem restoration. The database contains habitat distribution data and scenarios that calculate the value of these ecosystem services. The open source web apps, arranged by ecosystem service type, are readily used by both planners and managers and can be further customized to support ocean planning, nature-based adaptation, or mitigation projects.
