Learn about ocean planning and the complex interactions of different ocean uses, and discover MarineCadastre.gov, which can help officials plan for these different uses.


This video provides background information on ocean planning and shows how MarineCadastre.gov is used to determine the various uses present at an ocean site, as well as other considerations. Data points include shipping channels, endangered species, and various policy boundaries. Officials use this information to choose the best possible offshore sites for their projects—projects that often involve offshore energy.
