OceanReports is a publicly available tool which provides data and analysis tools of coastal and marine areas, to assist decisions in ocean commerce, energy development, and environmental resource use and conservation.

CSS supported this joint endeavor between NOAA’s Office of Coastal Management, NCCOS, and other partners by preparing, validating, and processing more than 100 data sets to produce a smart web application.  This project nominated for the NOAA Administrator’s Award. OceanReports analyzes and visualizes data within customer-determined ocean neighborhoods (polygons) and identifies ocean areas that could support growth of the Blue Economy. Users can get detailed information for a neighborhood on habitats and species, industries in the area, potential hazards (such as undersea cables or shipwrecks), economics of ocean commerce, and oceanographic and physical information.
