The article focuses on the Placentia Bay SmartBay project, which was a two year demonstration of the ways ocean technology can be used to support integrated ocean management and was funded by the Ocean Action Plan of Canada in 2006. Equipped with three met/ocean buoys strategically located in the bay, SmartBay contributes to improved forecasting of weather and sea state conditions. The features of the SmartBay web interface developed by Earth Information Technologies is presented.
