This is an Interdisciplinary Initiative supported by funds from Mississippi State University Center for Urban Rural Interface Studies. It brings together partners from various institutions and interest groups with the goal of promoting the sustainable growth and development in coastal areas along the Gulf of Mexico. The outcome of this initiative is a web-based Coastal Geospatial Information Support System (CGISS) for coastal areas that will allow users to identify and visualize critical information related to a wide variety of development issues including environment, natural resources, land use patterns, and urbanization. Users will be able to query data and create custom maps based on multiple development scenarios. Communities can use this educational tool to guide future decisions on growth and development in a sustainable manner such that the need for economic development is balanced with priorities associated with preserving the environment and conservation of natural resources. The CGISS will also help address important questions related to where in the coastal areas, the future growth and development should occur as well as assessing the environmental and / or economic impact of growth.
