Florida Coastal Mapping Program
January 9, 2018 - January 11, 2018
The State of Florida has one of the most valuable coastal zones in the nation (over $30 billion
in revenue per year), the greatest number of recreational boats and saltwater fisherman in the US, and
one of the largest concentrations of people living in the coastal zone. Accurate maps – which are based on geologic and geophysical data of the coastal seafloor – are essential for assessing coastal resilience, understanding mineral resource distribution, and examining sea-level rise indicators, all of which are essential for informed decision making of coastal zone management, navigation, and coastal community planning.
