The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in partnership with the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) and Washington Departments of Ecology and Natural Resources conducted a series of participatory human-use mapping workshops as part of the Pacific Regional Ocean Uses Atlas project. These workshops were held during April 2013 in Aberdeen and Port Angeles and convened local ocean use experts and stakeholders who, through facilitated mapping exercises, documented their spatial and contextual knowledge about ocean uses.
BOEM and NOAA collected similar data in Oregon, California, and Hawaii. The data is now accessible for viewing and download through the Marine Cadastre. Type “Proua” in the search bar to view or download the Washington dataset.
