Description: The Commercial Whale Watching Areas layer depicts activity areas mapped by whale watch industry experts in the Northeast Coastal and Marine Recreational Use Characterization Study which was conducted by SeaPlan, the Surfrider Foundation, and Point 97 under the direction of the Northeast Regional Planning Body. Whale watch owners, operators, naturalists, and data managers attended participatory mapping workshops to map areas where whale watching takes place in the region, while also providing information about seasonality, species, and overall industry trends. The data are classified by the following categories:</p><ul><li><strong>General use areas</strong> reflect the full footprint of whale watch activity in the last 3 – 5 years (2010 – 2014) regardless of frequency or intensity</li><li><strong>Dominant use areas</strong> include all areas routinely used by most users most of the time, according to seasonal patterns.</li><li><strong>Transit routes</strong> include areas used for transit to and from general or dominant use areas</li><li><strong>Supplemental areas</strong> depict areas used for closely-related activities and infrequent specialty trips.</li><li><strong>RI Ocean Special Area Management Plan areas</strong> were mapped as part of the Rhode Island Ocean Special Area Management plan and are symbolized separately to reflect different data collection methodologies.</li></ul><p>Users are encouraged to consult the metadata for additional details.
