Information presently available for siting coastal and marine renewable projects is often uncertain. Parametrix developed a spatial multi-criteria decision analysis system utilizing Bayesian decision methods and GIS-based data processing to inform the development of suitable areas for offshore energy projects. The system integrates oceanographic, ecological, human use data, stakeholder inputs, and cumulative impacts. It also accommodates an unlimited number of inputs, and integrates disparate data on bio-geophysical, social, and infrastructure information. The system is effective for identifying suitable areas for offshore ocean renewable energy projects and marine spatial planning in state territorial seas.
