Description: DOS staff worked with NOAA’s Coastal Services Center (CSC) to design and develop a participatory mapping process. Leaders from 30 partner organizations and other knowledgeable individuals were invited to participate in one of five offshore use workshops conducted during the summer of 2011: two each in Riverhead and Baldwin, and one in Manhattan.At the workshops, DOS and CSC trained organizational contacts and knowledgeable individuals to work with their colleagues, constituents, and memberships to collect ocean use information. At the conclusion of the workshops, participants were provided with information-collecting kits containing navigation charts, information tables, guidance for meeting with their members and collecting information, sample charts and tables, and copies of several one-pagers explaining DOS’s marine spatial planning process, ocean uses, offshore habitats, and offshore renewable energy development.Workshop participants collected ocean use information from their peers over several months, and the marked-up charts with corresponding information tables were returned to DOS, representing over 130 records of new ocean use information. DOS digitized the geographic information provided by ocean users and created an aggregate dataset, including linked attribute data characterizing each mapped use area. DOS staff returned to the organizations that provided ocean use information to “ground truth” the digitized data during the winter of 2011 and through the spring of 2012. These geographic data were updated/corrected based on participant feedback.
