The ocean is not an endless frontier of resources to be exploited. SeaSketch can be used for sustainable ocean planning.
Ocean uses overlap in space, and require good spatial management planning.
The McClintock Lab develops web-based tools for marine spatial planning and graphic visualizations for visualizing and analyzing marine research and information.
The McClintock Lab led the development of MarineMap for California and has developed SeaSketch, the next-generation collaborative GeoDesign application for ocean planning. SeaSketch was launched in October, 2012.
