The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management has reinvented the Environmental Studies Program Information System (ESPIS) to streamline the search, discovery and retrieval of more than 40 years of environmental science. The update was done in partnership with NOAA’s Office for Coastal Management and builds on the success of a previous BOEM/NOAA partnership that developed MarineCadastre.gov.

ESPIS, which is hosted on a shared platform with MarineCadastre.gov, holds information about ongoing and completed BOEM environmental studies and includes a new search tool that allows text and map-based queries. Information that can be found on ESPIS includes downloadable electronic documents of study profiles, technical summaries, final reports and links to associated publications and digital data.

MarineCadastre.gov  is an integrated marine information system that provides authoritative, up-to-date data, tools and technical support for ocean and Great Lakes planning. MarineCadastre.gov has three primary focus areas: Web map viewers and decision-support tools, a spatial data registry and technical support and regional capacity-building.

Note: The old ESPIS search tool will remain available at the BOEM Data Center during a transition period.
