GIS for Ocean Conservation

GIS for Ocean Conservation

Marine habitats and the life they contain are threatened by global warming, extreme weather, natural and man-made pollution, overharvesting, and additional human disturbances. GIS technology can show at-risk areas in danger of biodiversity loss, habitat degradation, and resource depletion. It also acts as an aid in monitoring and examining the effectiveness of conservation practices and protected areas to ensure the preservation of the earth's oceans.

ArcMarine: GIS for a Blue Planet

Arc Marine: GIS for a Blue Planet presents the initial results of a successful effort to create and define a data model for the marine community. The data model not only provides structure to storing and analyzing marine data but helps users create maps and three-dimensional scenes of the marine environment in ways invaluable to decision making.
