FIO members and partners have aggregated many of the available benthic habitat maps for the state's coastal and marine waters into a single portal. The Florida Coastal Mapping Program (FCMP) used this as a starting point for identifying gaps in coverage, developing a multi-year plan for filling those gaps and completing a high-resolution map for all of Florida's waters at a January 9-11, 2018 workshop in St. Petersburg.
