Maps and Geographical Data Explorers
BIOMappers let you interactively view data, aerial imagery, dive photography, underwater video and related publications developed for the benthic habitat mapping of many U.S. coral reefs. In addition to viewing benthic habitat data, you can examine the attributes of the data and show different thematic representations. Photos and
videos taken during dive missions are linked to the location of the dives.
Spatial Planning Portals
Spatial Planning Portals contain a collection of data to assist in determining whether an area is important and why. They are tailored to the needs of a specific project and designed to be used with a Prioritization Form to capture the information needs for that project and create a consensus of where future activities should be focused.
Data Explorer Maps
Data Explorer Maps let you view data collected by the National Status and Trends
Program (NS&T) and the National Benthic Inventory (NBI). Data explorer maps are most useful when looking for data for a specific geographic location. Tools for downloading data by study
or data type are available on our websites, tools and desktop applications page.
Story Maps combine interactive maps with narrative text, images, and multimedia content to tell a story.
