The Digital Coast partnership is an effort led by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Coastal Services Center. The Digital Coast is used to address timely coastal issues, including land use, coastal conservation, hazards, marine spatial planning, and climate change. Partners in this effort include the Association of State Floodplain Managers, Coastal States Organization, National Association of Counties, National States Geographic Information Council, and The Nature Conservancy. Case studies on the Digital Coast website feature more about the methods taken in Long Island Sound:
