By Joel Smith, Linda A. Sturgis and Monica Medina

In National Coastal Ocean Mapping: Advancing National Defense and Ocean Conservation, Monica Medina, Joel Smith and CDR Linda Sturgis, USCG propose that, "the development of a national coastal ocean mapping system with integrated geospatial data from all coastal ocean users would be an integral step towards balancing the offshore training needs of the military with the needs of conservation groups and the private sector."
