Esri's chief scientist Dawn Wright will share her geospatial expertise with WOC's Coastal and Marine Spatial Planning (CMSP) and Ocean Science working groups. Esri is a world leader in GIS.

"Geospatially referenced information is critical to addressing environmental challenges in the fluid, dynamic, interconnected marine world," said Paul Holthus, executive director, WOC. "Esri provides tools, technology, and innovation that support the responsible use and management of ocean space and resources."

WOC members are oil and gas, seafloor mining, shipping, fisheries, aquaculture, tourism, and offshore renewables companies.

WOC develops and implements programs that improve the science, data, and maps needed to address the challenges of sustainable ocean use. For example, WOC helps ocean organizations understand and participate in geospatial activities that support robust ocean use maps.

"Esri's alliance with the World Ocean Council and participation in its working groups will help us advance our Ocean GIS initiative," said Wright. "The success of the council's programs and objectives requires spatial thinking, data, and methods. GIS will play a key role in meeting sustainability objectives and developing international ocean policy."
