In partnership with the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation and NOAA's National Marine Sanctuaries, International Mapping developed the National Marine Sanctuaries: California Experience app as an all-in-one visitor’s guide to these amazing places, providing a wealth of information about the sights, sounds, history and natural wonders in and around California’s four national marine sanctuaries: Monterey Bay, Gulf of the Farallones, Channel Islands, and Cordell Bank.

The app covers more than 8,600 square miles of federally protected ocean and coastal waters stretching from Santa Barbara to San Francisco, and from Big Sur to the Farallon Islands. Zoomable layers make it easy to explore maps of the sanctuaries, complete with site boundaries, seafloor topography, visitor centers, historic shipwrecks, and much more. The app also features a searchable encyclopedia, glossary and photo gallery featuring more than 300 high-quality images of sanctuary marine life and habitats.

Customer Reviews

Sketchy at best

This app should focus on content, but it is a skeleton of what it should be. For instance, the lists of animals are far from comprehensive, certainly not encyclopedic and the accompanying descriptions of flora and fauna are extremely brief and unsophisticated -- about 3rd grade level, I'd guess.

The application is visually attractive and the interface is easy to navigate. I look forward to the next iteration of the app. No reason that it can't be great. It'll just take a little time and some earnest web-based research.


Cool way to learn about California's publicly accessible underwater parks, shows places to go learn about them, experience them, and species that one could see there.
