MassGIS Data: MORIS Layers from Coastal Zone Management

Overview

The GIS datalayers listed on this page were developed by the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management (CZM) or their affiliates. MassGIS stores unmodified copies in its ArcSDE geodatabase for use in MORIS and web mapping services. MORIS, the Massachusetts Ocean Resource Information System, is an online mapping tool similar to OLIVER, with an emphasis on ocean datalayers. These layers may be downloaded as shapefiles or GeoTiffs from within MORIS.

For details please visit the following Web pages maintained by CZM (the names of the layers as stored at MassGIS are listed in parentheses). Any questions please contact Daniel.Sampson@state.ma.us at CZM.
