In an effort to further Georgia’s understanding of the potential of offshore energy, Georgia Tech researchers have gathered and compiled spatial and descriptive information to assist industry professionals, academics, and government agencies with their research and assessment of the potential of offshore energy. There are numerous amounts of open source information from public and non-profit agencies available. However, they are not generally available in an easily accessible form or at a singular repository. Georgia Tech researchers have documented multiple sources of existing marine and oceanographic data, contacts for difficult to locate data, and ways to utilize the data. Graphics and maps generated from the compiled data provide various stakeholders, researchers, and government officials with baseline information to help them make well informed decisions concerning offshore wind energy potential.
