Environmental Response Management Application (ERMA®), Gulf of Mexico

The Environmental Response Management Application (ERMA®) is a web-based Geographic Information System (GIS) tool that assists both emergency responders and environmental resource managers in dealing with incidents that may adversely impact the environment. ERMA® integrates and synthesizes various real-time and static datasets into a single interactive map, thus provides fast visualization of the situation and improves communication and coordination among responders and environmental stakeholders.

Gulf of Mexico ERMA brings together the data necessary to plan for or respond to an emergency response in the Gulf of Mexico, including information on oil infrastructure, extent of sea turtle habitat, shoreline habitats, and presence of threatened and endangered species. The dataset also incorporates geographically specific elements of the Area Contingency Plan for the Gulf, such as response equipment locations and protection strategies.
