Gulf of Mexico Framework Bathymetry Data Service
Award number IA560110408b, Category 2: Establishing Framework Data Service
NOAA and ESRI will establish an OGC compliant Web Feature Service of framework bathymetry data for the Gulf of Mexico. Bathymetry provides the spatial infrastructure for a broad range of gulf-wide users including those in recreational boating, fishing, ecosystem modeling, flood inundation, marine transportation, oil and gas exploration and management, dredge material management, and coastal hazards. User demand and expectation for available bathymetry has increased as the terrestrial geospatial community has progressed and users see the value of seamless map products for the land-sea interface.
