Mary Van Zant's insight:
Smart ocean planning using crowdsourced data

The marine and coastal zones of the world host a growing number of overlapping and at times competing uses and activities. The commercial, recreational, cultural, energy, scientific, conservation, security, and other interests of these users drive our ocean priorities. These include the protection of life and property, securing renewable energy resources, developing and sustaining ocean productivity, supporting national security and of course ensuring its enjoyment by recreational boaters.

About | Marine Debris Tracker

About | Marine Debris Tracker | Texas Stream Team | Scoop.it

Marine Debris Tracker
The Mobile App Marine Debris Tracker is a joint partnership of the NOAA Marine Debris Division and the Southeast Atlantic Marine Debris Initiative (SEA-MDI), located within the College of Engineering at the University of Georgia. A primary goal of SEA-MDI is to use innovative technologies and unique expertise to add culturally relevant outreach tools and information to the current NOAA Marine Debris Division. Marine Debris Tracker is the first product of this initiative. It is our hope that it will spread awareness of marine debris, as well as serve as an easy to use and simple tool for marine debris data collection. Please feel free to provide feedback to us individually or at sea.marine.debris@gmail.com. Need a customized Marine Debris App? Marine Debris Tracker will likely soon serve your needs or contact us for more details on how that can be done. We would also like to acknowledge the work of the following people on this project.
