First Draft Ocean Energy Demonstration Project Study Areas

  • Title: First Draft Ocean Energy Demonstration Project Study Areas
  • Abstract:

    OE_Draft_Areas is a shapefile that depicts the location of all first draft study areas for the Maine Ocean Energy Demonstration Project. Draft study areas were identified after review of the OE_Preliminary_Areas by Maine's Ocean Energy Task Force. The polygon features are all located in Maine’s coastal waters, within the state’s three-mile jurisdiction. Attributes include the study area’s name, an identification letter and a link to a PDF map of the study area. The data layer was created in 2009.
