The Massachusetts Ocean Management Plan protects critical marine habitat and important water-dependent uses and provides a management framework for ocean-based projects in Massachusetts. The spatial data for the ocean plan is available through these resources:
- 2021 Massachusetts Ocean Management Plan Viewer - This web mapping application allows users to select and view ocean plan data layers.
- 2021 Massachusetts Ocean Management Plan (data descriptions and downloads) - This page provides descriptions of and links to the ocean plan data layers, which can be downloaded or viewed.
- Data for Previous Versions of the Ocean Plan - The Massachusetts Ocean Resource Information System (MORIS) was retired in 2021. While CZM is finalizing the new version of this online mapping tool, the MORIS Viewer in the new MassMapper provides access to spatial data from previous ocean plans.
