Marine Planner

The Our Florida Reefs marine planner is an online mapping tool and resource that is available for all to visualize southeast Florida coastal and ocean datasets. The Our Florida Reefs marine planner provides community working group members with advanced technology to aid in the development of their recommended management actions for southeast Florida reefs.

The marine planner also serves as a resource to engage all stakeholders in the process. The datasets include information such as population density, mooring buoy locations, fish densities, coral densities, and reef habitat types. The Our Florida Reefs marine planner is updated as appropriate with datasets for the Our Florida Reefs process as they become available.


The shapefiles within the marine planner have various minimum mapping units (MMU), that is, the level of detail any given habitat is delineated to has an accuracy limit. For instance most benthic habitat maps have a MMU of 1 acre, or accuracy of 1 acre.
