National Viewer

Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, NOAA Office for Coastal Management


This web-based viewer provides the baseline information needed for ocean planning efforts, particularly those that involve finding the best location for renewable energy projects. The viewer is also a helpful tool for the permit review process. View jurisdictional boundaries, restricted areas, applicable laws, critical habitat locations, and other important features within a selected ocean area. Use these data to identify potential conflicts early in the planning process.
