The Ohio Coastal Atlas (OCA) is a suite of mapping resources developed by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Office of Coastal Management (OCM) to provide coastal decision-makers, land management professionals, engineers, educators, interest groups and the general public with information about Lake Erie and its watershed. The OCA project features a variety of products, including the printed Ohio Coastal Atlas, Second Edition (2007), the Interactive Coastal Atlas Map Viewer (version 2.0) and various theme-oriented, Interactive Use Case Map Viewers.
The OCA was first developed as a 240-page print publication to spatially address "big picture" aspects of Lake Erie and effectively illustrates interactions between cultural, biological, physical and natural resources in the Lake Erie basin and watershed. The atlas is a collaborative effort among many partnering organizations and brings many different and diverse disciplines together into a user-friendly format that is easily understood by those not familiar with certain subject matters.
