Scientific information is key to helping society understand oceans and seas, how they are changing, and the consequences of those changes. You can use GIS tools to understand and analyze the world's oceans and seas and the many resources they contain.
ArcGIS provides tools to understand the systems at work in the marine world. The geodatabase, ArcGIS for Server, and extensions facilitate the collection of dynamic and multidimensional data from the oceans, seas, and coasts and provide a logical way to represent them. These tools serve as a unified and comprehensive guide to sharing important information for decision making.
These stories show how marine and coastal organizations use GIS for research.
