This layer is a component of North Carolina Offshore Renewable Energy Planning.

A task force of officials from state, local, and federal government agencies was convened by the Department of Interior’s Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) to discuss the designation of wind energy areas in federal waters off the coast of North Carolina. The task force helps minimize the potential for significant conflicts with offshore wind farm construction and operations. Information needs include data on existing ocean uses like military operation areas, marine transportation and navigation, important fishing areas, sensitive habitat, and viewsheds. MarineCadastre.gov, a joint BOEM and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration initiative providing authoritative data to meet the needs of the offshore energy and marine planning communities, worked with the North Carolina Task Force to develop this map, which includes many of the data layers being used in their decision-making process.
This map service presents spatial information about MarineCadastre.gov services across the United States and Territories in the Web Mercator projection. The service was developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), but may contain data and information from a variety of data sources, including non-NOAA data. NOAA provides the information “as-is” and shall incur no responsibility or liability as to the completeness or accuracy of this information. NOAA assumes no responsibility arising from the use of this information. The NOAA Office for Coastal Management will make every effort to provide continual access to this service but it may need to be taken down during routine IT maintenance or in case of an emergency. If you plan to ingest this service into your own application and would like to be informed about planned and unplanned service outages or changes to existing services, please register for our Data Services Newsletter (coast.noaa.gov/digitalcoast/publications/subscribe).
