Over the past few years ESRI, with a significant amount of user community input, has been engaged in the exercise of
building “industry-specific” data models for ArcGIS. A new marine data model (Arc Marine) has been developed for those
who apply GIS to the coasts, estuaries, marginal seas, and/or the deep ocean. This article provides an overview of the
activities that led to the release of the data model and accompanying reference book (‘Arc Marine: GIS for a Blue Planet’),
with an invitation for those interested to participate in the continued refinement and improvement of Arc Marine via the
preparation of additional use cases.
