West Hawaiʻi Habitat Focus Area Map Viewer
PacIOOS partnered with NOAA's Habitat Blueprint Program to build a map viewer for the West Hawaiʻi Habitat Focus Area. The tool allows users to see where scientific data has been collected within the Habitat Focus Area, and also provides datasets such as boundaries, protected areas, land and seafloor features, monitoring sites, and more. For proprietary reasons, only the geographic location and the type of monitoring data collected are displayed. The map viewer supports NOAA and partners to make more informed decisions and to strive towards the long-term goal of improving the coral reef habitat, fostering sustainable use of marine resources, and increasing local capacity for future management in West Hawaiʻi.
