Arc Marine: GIS for a Blue Planet presents the initial results of a successful effort to create and define a data model for the marine community. The data model not only provides structure to storing and analyzing marine data but also helps users create maps and three-dimensional scenes of the marine environment in ways invaluable to decision making. The standards and best practices that emerge from the case studies in "Arc Marine" form a diverse set of resources to draw from as the marine community strives to understand, illuminate, chart, and explore the unknown depths.
Lead author Dawn Wright holds a PhD in physical geography and marine geology from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and is a professor of geography and oceanography at Oregon State University. Dr. Wright has completed oceanographic fieldwork in some of the most geologically active regions of the planet, including the Sea of Japan and the Indian Ocean. Dr. Wright has dived three times in the deep submergence vehicle "Alvin" and twice in the "Pisces V." She serves on the editorial boards of the International Journal of Geographical Information Science, Transactions in GIS, and Geospatial Solutions.
