This seminar will describe the usage and rollout of the Great Lakes Spatial Priorities Study, a study conducted across state governments in the U.S., province governments in Canada, academia, and other institutions to gather information about where different organizations have mapping needs and priorities. This spatial priorities study, in conjunction with the National Ocean Mapping, Exploration, and Characterization (NOMEC) strategy, allowed users to determine which regions of the Great Lakes have the most mapping need so that resources can be allocated efficiently. Other goals include providing a means for participants to reach out to others for coordination and encouraging shared funding opportunities where there is a shared mapping need between organizations. Participants entered their office’s mapping priorities in the winter of 2020/2021 with an easy-to-use online geospatial tool developed by NCCOS. These results were analyzed using geospatial and statistical methods to identify areas of greatest mapping need, and areas where there could be increased coordination between offices. By easily identifying areas of shared mapping interest, the Great Lakes spatial priorities study encourages mapping collaboration and shared funding opportunities.
