MaPP Marine Plan Portal

Created: 6/22/2016 - Updated: 12/13/2018

Overview

The MaPP Marine Plan Portal is a sophisticated tool that allows users to look at the MaPP sub-regional marine spatial plan zones, get information on recommended uses and activities for each zone, view a variety of data layers related to the planning process and plan implementation and learn more about the North Pacific Coast of British Columbia – the MaPP study area. The portal displays the approved MaPP sub-regional marine spatial plan zones and has more than 250 data layers including administrative boundaries, species, habitats and marine uses. The Marine Plan Portal can be used to:

  • view the MaPP sub-regional marine spatial plan zones and get information on recommended uses and activities in each zone;
  • view publicly available spatial data layers – ecological, social, cultural, economic and administrative;
  • overlap spatial data layers with the MaPP sub-regional marine spatial plan zones to learn about the different values found in each zone;
  • read descriptions of marine data and follow links to the data sources; and print high quality maps or save maps as images.

Sea level rise and sea surface temperatures can be easily overlaid with species distribution and habitat extent, protected areas, and commercial and recreational fisheries use, among others.

Audience
