CSMP Mission

The creation of a high-resolution 1:24,000 scale geologic and habitat base map series covering all of California's 14,500 km2 state waters out to the 3 mile limit, and support of the state's Marine Life Protection Act Initiative (MLPA) goal to create a statewide network of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs).

Map generation products follow a 3-tiered approach-- from basic survey data to highly detailed habitat classification.

The need for baseline maps for monitoring & assessment was the most common requirement expressed among a very diverse list of mapping user needs.
