Where do the reports go?
Reports are provided to state coastal resource managers and municipal officials through our online tool set.
We use multiple tools to automatically gather weather and tidal information for the report based on its exact time and location — nearly 200 data points and growing. All of this data is available for easy download by state leads.
Simple but powerful state admin pages
State leads can view, approve, or trash posts as they come in. They can also view and contact their users, and download all their data and photos with a couple of clicks.
