Current Issues Map Galleries | Offshore Wind
The Current Issues Map Galleries provide quick access to ready-made maps that relate to current issues in the region. Many of the maps feature customized combinations of data. For each map, a direct link is provided to an interactive version in the Data Explorer, which can be used as a starting point to build your own custom maps. There is also a downloadable pdf version of each map for printing, emailing, or including in presentations or public comment documents.
Offshore Wind Map Gallery
This map gallery is intended as a resource for people interested in offshore wind activities in the northeastern US. The Department of Interior Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) has regulatory authority over offshore wind development. While the Northeast Ocean Data Portal obtains data from BOEM and provides BOEM with opportunities to review these maps, users requiring authoritative data and information regarding offshore wind leasing and regulatory processes should obtain it directly from BOEM. Maps will be added to the gallery as more data related to offshore wind development are added to the Portal.
For more information about the status of offshore wind projects and when the Portal receives data, visit the Offshore Wind Projects overview page.
