OPEN DATA. OPEN COLLABORATION.

GREATER IMPACT.

We're transforming ecosystem conservation initiatives and the sustainable use of coastal & marine resources in Atlantic Canada.

OUR IMPACT

Data informs everything we do. Sharing and using open data has significant benefits for marine and coastal planning and decision making. The more high-quality data you have, the better decisions you can make.  Open information sharing helps us identify environmental changes earlier and adapt and innovate sooner.

iNTEGRATED OCEAN

NETWORK

COINAtlantic has worked across sectors for over 25 years to promote open data and information sharing in Atlantic Canada to increase opportunities for marine protection and wise use. 

OPEN INFORMATION EXCHANGE

Benefit from open ocean data and cross-sector approaches for planning in our coasts and oceans: innovative, collaborative, and informed decision on shared ocean resources.

COASTAL & OCEAN COLLABORATIONS

We use a collaborative approach to connect multi-sector project partners with regional, national, and international specialists, to provide open data tools
and resources.

iMPROVED DECISION

MAKING

Managing marine data for access and re-use improves our understanding of coasts and oceans, enhances conservation planning, and reduces conflicts in marine spaces.
