For those that haven’t seen them yet, there’s a great series of blog posts about what tools folks are using for Marine Spatial Planning, what’s working well, what’s not, and overall lessons learned. They’re based on survey responses from 124 individuals involved in Marine Spatial Planning throughout the world. 

Lots of interesting tools and lessons learned that are very applicable even outside of the marine environment
