The Tampa Bay Interactive Mapping System was an Internet based Geographic Information System designed to provide users with online mapping capability. The Tampa Bay IMS was defunded in 2007, and can no longer be accessed.
The entire Gulf of Mexico Integrated Science group of websites, data, libraries, and interactive mapping systems (IMS) is a legacy site and is no longer funded by the U.S. Geological Survey. Much of the data and resources were transferred to the Tampa Bay Estuary Atlas (http://www.wateratlas.org). Users are referred to the Tampa Bay Estuary website for data and resources on the Tampa Bay estuary.
