Authors of the book Arc Marine discuss results of a successful effort to create and define a data model for academic, government, military, and private oceanographers, resource managers, conservationists, geographers, nautical archaeologists, and analysts and managers of marine applications. Arc Marine is the perfect starting point for the intermediate marine student as well as a resource for the marine GIS expert. At a time when health of our oceans is seen as crucial to our existence, marine researchers have developed a data model that supports sea floor mapping, fisheries management, marine mammal tracking, monitoring shoreline change, and water temperature analysis. This book enables marine professionals to do better work.
