A pair of new maps on the Mid-Atlantic Ocean Data Portal provide a glimpse at which coastal counties’ economies are most closely linked with the ocean. Both maps are digitized, interactive versions of maps that first appeared in MARCO’s 2018 report “Climate Change Vulnerabilities in the Coastal Mid-Atlantic Region.”  Go to the maps here.

 

The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) and Mid-Atlantic Ocean Data Portal team have partnered to create three new maps showing proposed anchorage grounds in the Chesapeake and Delaware Bay areas and a Port Access Route Study (PARS) area extending offshore from Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, to Ocean City, Maryland. All three maps can be found by clicking on the “USCG Proposed Areas and Studies” dropdown within the Portal’s Maritime theme, or go to the maps here.
