The Mid-Atlantic Ocean Data Portal is an online toolkit and resource center that consolidates available data and enables state, federal, and local users and the general public to visualize and analyze ocean resources and human use information such as fishing grounds, recreational areas, shipping lanes, habitat areas, and energy sites, among others. The Data Portal is continually updated as appropriate datasets that align with Mid-Atlantic Regional Council on the Ocean (MARCO) priorities become available.

The Data Portal serves as a platform to engage all stakeholders in the five coastal Mid-Atlantic states, putting all of the essential data and state-of-the-art mapping and visualization technology into the hands of the agencies, industry, community leaders, and stakeholders engaged in ocean planning.
