Function: Online function code: download Role: inapplicable Abstract: This layer displays coastal and offshore marine place names. These are general names for areas of the sea as published on the NOAA Nautical Charts. Different marine place names are displayed depending on the scale you are zoomed into on the map. This layer was created by extracting the Natural Features, Sea Area Named Water Areas from all scale bands in the NOAA Electronic Navigation Charts. Purpose: To support coastal and ocean planning and other activities pursuant to the Energy Policy Act, Coastal Zone Management Act, Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, National Environmental Policy Act, Rivers and Harbors Act and the Submerged Lands Act.
