Map of the Month: ERMA Tiny Tutorial
The Environmental Response Management Application (ERMA®) is NOAA’s online mapping tool that integrates both static and real-time data, enabling users to quickly and securely access, analyze, and display spatial data. The "Map of the Month" series highlights unique maps from throughout ERMA's use and history.
While The Environmental Response Management Application (ERMA®) is an online mapping tool frequently used by scientists and emergency responders, much of ERMA’s data is public and accessible to people from all walks of life.
OR&R experts recently teamed up with NOAA environmental educators to create a Tiny Tutorial, which is a step-by-step guide explaining how to use ERMA.
This fun and interactive tool walks users through how to log in, zoom into the Gulf of Mexico, click through Deepwater Horizon datasets, and open a photo of a dolphin swimming through oil.
