This treasure trove of links has been offered over the years as a service in order to help seafloor/seabed mapping and marine/coastal GIS specialists, students, and interested parties from all over the world to find helpful information and data. It was originally developed by Dr. Dawn Wright and her graduate students in the Oregon State University Davey Jones' Locker research lab, and was further maintained by Dawn from 2011-2021 in her role as Esri Chief Scientist.
