A new web-based interactive tool for ocean mapping and planning created by NOAA and the Department of the Interior's Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, will give everyone from ocean industries to coastal managers, students, as well as the general public the opportunity to be an ocean explorer from their own computer.

The new OceanReports web tool, available at http://www.marinecadastre.gov/oceanreports/ , provides users specialized "ocean neighborhood analyses" including maps and graphics by analyzing more than 100 ocean datasets instantaneously.
