ArcGIS Online Martin County Artificial Reef Map

Martin County, Florida Engineering Department launched its new location map on September 9, 2014. The map shows the reef location, depth, distance from the St. Lucie Inlet, underwater reef photos and the most recent monitoring report, which lists the species of fish found in the reefs that year. The County will update the photos and add new reefs as they are constructed. We were happy to help the County with the application and hope it brings more awareness to the Martin County Artificial Reef Program and its public outreach efforts.
