I'd love to hear how this database supported your community needs or fell short. Plus any best "how to use" tips you may have to share. I recently learned that NOAA adds Oil Spill data to this database for the Pacific Northwest Region, which is what sparked my curiosity.
About: The Environmental Response Management Application (ERMA) is an online mapping tool that integrates both static and real-time data, such as Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) maps, ship locations, weather, and ocean currents, in a centralized, easy-to-use format for environmental responders and decision makers.
ERMA is designed to:
- Visualize information relevant to spill preparedness and planning.
- Assist in coordinating emergency response efforts and situational awareness for human and natural disasters.
- Support the Natural Resource Damage Assessment process.
- Aid in ecological recovery and restoration efforts.
