University of California, Santa Cruz, Institute of Marine Sciences (IMS) () "Established in 1972, the institute now supports a variety of research activities in many areas. The institute on-campus complex includes the IMS office, faculty research laboratories; analytical labs for Marine Chemistry; biology and geology; a computer laboratory; culture room for invertebrates and algae; portable seagoing analytic labs; and support facilities for the Aņo Nuevo Island program. In addition is the Joseph M. Long Marine Laboratory, an onshore site located 3 miles from the UCSC campus."
USFWS Gulf of Maine Project (Arnold Banner) Covers the fish and wildlife of Great Bay, New Hampshire. "We used gis to create grids of bathymetry, temperature and salinity gradients, and substrate, then used these parameters to create maps for a number of marine/estuarine organisms. The site includes the full text, tables, appendixes, and figures of all life stages of all species modeled and all environmental themes. A wordprocesser version and all of the gis data may be downloaded as raster (*.bil) files zipped to include metadata and header information. These can be brought directly into ArcInfo by the imagegrid command, or viewed as images in ArcView "
Wisconsin Coastal GIS Applications Project (University of Wisconsin Sea Grant Institute, 1975 Willow Drive 2nd Floor, Madison, WI 53706 tel:(608) 262-0644 fax:(608) 263-2063 (fax) . mailto:email@example.com) "is a cooperative venture of the University of Wisconsin Sea Grant Institute and the Land Information and Computer Graphics Facility at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The primary goal of the project is to teach the application of GIS/LIS and related spatial technologies to local government staff and officials to aid them in moving towards the sustainable management of Great Lakes coastal resources".
