ArcGIS Online map of all CRMC-designated rights-of-way to the shore
The R.I. Coastal Resources Management Council (CRMC) with assistance of the URI Coastal Institute has updated its Arc GIS online database containing information on each of the CRMC-designated public rights-of-way (ROW) to the shore.
Initially created in 2014 by then-CRMC intern Emily Robinson, the newly updated version of the GIS (Geographic Information Systems) database includes a map that identifies the location of each ROW with an icon. A click on any of these icons will open a window that includes that particular ROW’s name, its designation number, the means of access it provides, the coastal feature present, and other documentation regarding its designation. URI’s Environmental Data Center (EDC) assisted in developing the new platform, and the Coastal Institute volunteered to undertake the effort. Unlike other ArcGIS applications, there is no log-in required for using this ROW database.
