ABSTRACT: The Northeast Ocean Data Portal is an online data and information system developed by a consortium of private, nonprofit, and governmental organizations to support ocean planning in the Northeast. The portal provides access to cloud-based data products and interactive web maps that characterize marine resources and the use of ocean space, while also harnessing and providing access to a range of ocean management and planning resources within, and outside of, the region. This year, multiple datasets on the Portal have undergone updates, and there has been exciting new functionality added to give the user more control over the data viewing environment. This presentation will highlight some of the recent major updates. It will also demonstrate the new ability for users to view hundreds of individual fish, marine mammal, and bird species data layers with other data that supports ocean planning. Finally, this presentation will discuss how to access, interpret, and make decisions based on usage statistics for hosted ArcGIS Server map services that are publicly available. In addition, it will discuss ways these capabilities have helped shape decisions made by the Northeast Ocean Data Portal working group.
