I apologize if this map has been posted previously. It's full of info, although the fishing closure outline is not accurate. Spend some time clicking on all the menus. You may be surprised to find data you didn't know existed.

Thanks for posting the link. +1 on the quality of the map. It's very detailed.

Atchafalaya Man from another site said to use these steps in the layers area to see exactly where oil has impacted our marsh and coastline.

It worked, sadly.

Regarding the blank map that seems to have no information, it looks like the website defaults the map back to the basic view. Once there, click the following items:

1) Layers
2) Shoreline Cleanup Assessment Technique (SCAT)
3) Louisiana
4) (Select the “Cumulative” box)
5) Mobile Sector
6) (Select the “Cumulative box again)
7) Now, select the upper tab called “Legend” and you will see the color code.

You can use your mouse to grab and drag the map around, and zoom in with the slide-bar on the left.

Thanks, I received it from one of my friends who's retired Coast Guard. It's pretty neat!!
