Planning Portals

Many marine spatial planning processes include the development of online web-portals, designed to complement by the process by increasing transparency, encouraging stakeholder engagement, and provide a central location for data that can be accessed by planners and managers. Functions of these tools can include:

  • Providing a platform for users to view and download data associated with the planning process
  • Capturing, comparing, and sharing stakeholder feedback during the planning process
  • Analyzing, comparing, and revealing trade-offs among possible management scenarios

We have primarily included portals that reflect our partnerships; this list is not intended to be all-inclusive.  In general, the tools listed on this page are specific to a particular geography and intended to support coastal and marine planning and management. Contact us with suggestions for additional applications to include on this site.
