TNC Offshore Wind Marine Life & Habitat Data Mapper

This tool was created to quantitatively assess marine life and habitats based on data from the regional data portals to support environmental impact assessments related to wind energy development offshore. “Flags” are intended to draw attention to significant marine features in the Area of Interest (AOI) that may need monitoring or mitigation.

Aquaculture application: Environmental assessments of benthic, pelagic, and species of interest (e.g., marine mammals, birds, fish, invertebrates) can be used in collaborative aquaculture or offshore wind habitat suitability planning and siting efforts.

Contributing Partners: The Nature Conservancy
