Integrated Ocean and Coastal Mapping


Map Once, Use Many Times

Data Sharing

Best practices in sharing of ocean and coastal mapping data include centralized access to data via repositories and inventories as well as the availability of value-added integrated data products. Participation in the full spectrum of data-sharing activities enables others to be aware of existing data so they can make informed survey planning decisions to optimize the use of scarce mapping resources. The IOCM community promotes data-sharing with the curation and management of ocean and coastal mapping data at national repositories, and through critical Web-based services to facilitate discovery and access. The links below represent resources that help facilitate data-sharing:
