Map Services

Core Services

Managed Areas

Contains data for the Allowable Golden Crab Fishery Areas, Shrimp Fishery Access Areas, Deepwater Coral HAPCs, SAFMC Restrictions, Marine Protected Areas, Danger Zones, and other Federal Marine Managed Areas.


Serves SEAMAP species data, MARMAP species data, MARMAP gear types, bathymetry, and boundaries for the continental shelf, US Federal State and US Territorial Seas

Essential Fish Habitat (EFH)

Displays Essential Fish Habitat (EFH) and Essential Fish Habitat-Habitat Areas of Particular Concern (EFH-HAPCs) for several species under SAFMC's jurisdiction.

Complementary Services


Displays habitat data collected by SEADESC, Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute (HBOI) and Ocean Exploration dives, as well as the SEAMAP shallow and ESDIM deepwater bottom mapping projects, multibeam imagery, and scientific cruise data.

Nautical Charts

Displays coastal, general, and overview nautical charts for the SAFMC’s jurisdictional area. Although updated charts are available from NOAA's RNC map service, SAFMC has found the LORAN lines dipslayed on older charts helpful in public workshop forums.


Displays a variety of multibeam data sources and scanned bathymetry charts. Data sets from NOAA's Deep Sea Coral Missions, Southeast Fishery-Independent Survey (SEFIS), and Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute (HBOI) are included.

External Services

NOAA's Estuarine Bathymetry

Estuarine Bathymetry was developed by the Special Projects Office of the National Ocean Service (NOS) as part of a project to produce readily available bathymetry. Seventy of the approximately 130 estuaries within the conterminous U.S. are available from this site.

BOEM Atlantic

This map includes many of the data layers being used by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) to assist in marine spatial planning efforts on the outer continental shelf (OCS).

DEM Hillshade

Hillshade visualizations for high-resolution digital elevation models (DEMs) of select U.S. coastal regions. These integrated bathymetric-topographic DEMs are used to support tsunami forecasting and modeling efforts at the NOAA Center for Tsunami Research, Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory (PMEL).
