Project Goal: The goal of the Ocean Planning Information System (OPIS) is to provide easy access to comprehensive ocean-related data and information that will enhance regional, integrated approaches to coastal and ocean resource management. OPIS Project Summary: The Ocean Planning Information System, developed by the NOAA Coastal Services Center, in partnership with the states of North and South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida, provides the coastal management community with access to regional geo-referenced regulatory and environmental spatial data critical to timely, integrated decision making and analysis. This is the first attempt in the U.S. to create regional, multi-state information system for the coastal ocean.
