The Ocean Shores Data Viewer was designed for Oregon’s local planners, state agencies and others working on coastal land-use issues to view, overlay, evaluate, and interact with digital ocean shores data more efficiently. This Viewer provides access to the statewide Goal 18 Beachfront Protection Structure (BPS) eligibility inventory, as well as the existing BPS inventory. Other coastal datasets are also included in this Viewer, such as tsunami inundation areas, coastal erosion hazard zones, and FEMA flood mapping.
Ocean Shores Data Viewer User's Guide
The user interface of the Ocean Shores Data Viewer was designed and built by local level government users for local level government uses. Originally developed in Minnesota, where it acquired the name “GeoMoose,” it was adopted in Oregon in 2010 by the Oregon Local Government Web Mapping Consortium. The interface contains many tools tailored to specific local government tasks.
