Service Description: We developed a spatial framework and on-line application to identify priorities for seafloor mapping and visual surveys along the U.S. west CONUS coast (WCC) from California to Washington. This project will enable federal resource agencies and participating organizations to more effectively coordinate assets, and efficiently guide future WCC seafloor mapping, research, and exploration activities. This project’s objective is to identify and summarize spatial priorities for seafloor mapping and visual surveys from California to Washington. Seafloor mapping is defined as using sound navigation and ranging (SoNAR) to make maps of the surficial seabed and/or sub-bottom features. Visual surveys include underwater video collection using towed camera sleds, remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), and autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs). This prioritization does not include in situ sampling, cores, bottom grabs, etc. NCCOS will build on recent west coast prioritization efforts conducted offshore of Washington, and expand geographically to include California and Oregon. This effort uses GIS data from ongoing NCCOS projects along the WCC, including BOEM’s Pacific Cross-shelf Macrofauna and Deep-Sea Coral Suitability Modeling project. Other relevant, readily-available GIS datasets (e.g., essential fish habitats, habitat areas of particular concern, energy lease areas, etc.) are provided in the prioritization application from existing data warehouses (e.g., NOAA NWFSC FRAM) or if provided by partners in readily-accessible GIS formats. These datasets can be viewed by participating organizations to help guide their selection of high priority areas.
