Just uploaded, a video from the 2017 Esri Ocean GIS Forum on the next phase of the Ecological Marine Units project. See a demo by Esri's Sean Breyer about the incorporation of higher-resolution data to create more '"ocalized" EMUs in smaller, regional areas of interest. Also Roger Sayre of the USGS reports on the 2-day scoping meeting that took place prior to the Ocean GIS Forum to initiate the new Ecological Cosatal Units project.

The specifics on the new workflow will become part of the Ecological Marine Units main web site in January 2018.
