Multiple mapping services and geographic data files are available for the public. MWA provides links to a number of these below. Please contact MWA if you have a mapping program or data to share on this page.
Open Accessible Space Information System (OASIS NYC) http://www.oasisnyc.net The New York City Open Accessible Space Information System Cooperative (OASIS) is a partnership of more than 30 federal, state, and local agencies, private companies, academic institutions, and nonprofit organizations to create a one-stop, interactive mapping and data analysis application via the Internet to enhance the stewardship of open space for the benefit of New York City (NYC) residents. The MWA co-sponsored public access database of all known waterfront access points in the metropolitan area is hosted here and can be viewed as an interactive layer.
If you're looking for a few hours of tranquil paddling or a full-day expedition, you'll find it here. The NYC Water Trail connects 160 square miles of rivers, bays, creeks, inlets and ocean in the five boroughs suitable for kayaks, canoes, and open-water rowing craft. Novice and experienced paddlers alike can enjoy skyline panoramas, riverside parks, bird sanctuaries, tidal marshlands, and boundless vistas of one of the world‘s premier harbors, all from a prime sea-level vantage.
