CO-OPS GIS Data Portal Map Services and Applications
Published GIS Services
CO-OPS public GIS services allowing data to be used for desktop mapping and other GIS applications.
CO-OPS Stations Map Service (WMS, WFS, Feature Service)
CO-OPS Stations Map Service is the spatial data from present and historical oceanographic
and meteorological data collected by NOAA's Center for Operational Oceanographic Products
and Services. Layers served are active water level stations, historic water level
stations, active currents stations, historic currents stations, all meteorological
stations, conductivity stations, and water temperature stations collected by CO-OPS
at various locations around the USA and it's territories.
CO-OPS Products Map Service (WMS, WFS, Feature Service)
CO-OPS Products map service is the spatial data for products that are
derived from present and historical oceanographic and meteorological data
collected by the NOAA's Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and
Services. Layers served are datums, published benchmarks, benchmarks,
sea level trends, water level constituents, extreme water levels,
currents predictions, and water level predictions processed at CO-OPS at
various stations around the USA and it's territories.
CO-OPS Operational Forecast System (OFS) Map Service
The National Ocean Service's Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services (CO-OPS) Operational Forecast System (OFS) Models map service depicts the coverage of present OFS models around the US and its territories. NOAA provides forecast guidance of oceanographic information to help mariners safely navigate their local waters. This national network of hydrodynamic models provides users with operational nowcast and forecast guidance (out to 48 hours) on parameters such as water levels, water temperature, salinity, and currents. These forecast systems are implemented in critical ports, harbors, estuaries, Great Lakes and coastal waters of the United States, and form a national backbone of real-time data, tidal predictions, data management and operational modeling. Please refer to the specific layer description for more information or visit https://tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov/.
NWLON and PORTS Maps:
These maps by the National Ocean Service (NOS) Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services (CO-OPS)
display National Water Level Network (NWLON) stations and Physical Oceanographic Real-Time System (PORTS) stations.
CO-OPS Discrete Tidal Zoning Map:
This web map displays discrete tidal zoning generated by the National Ocean Service (NOS) Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services (CO-OPS). Zoned tides, relative to a tidal datum, can be constructed by applying time and range correctors to observed water level data from a NOAA tide station.
