Matt Merrifield
GIS Manager, The Nature Conservancy


Matt Merrifield is the geographic information systems manager at the Nature Conservancy of California specializing GIScience and conservation planning. Mr. Merrifield is also a principal investigator of the MarineMap Consortium – a group working to advance the integration of marine policy, science and technology by creating better tools for marine spatial planning.

Matt has a B.A. in Geography from U.C. Berkeley and an M.A. in Geography, Resource Management and Environmental Planning from San Francisco State University


Protecting the diversity of California’s marine habitats is a pressing concern. We’ve developed a web application that lets citizens define and share Marine Protected Areas. Built with traditional and Open Source geospatial technologies, “MarineMap” users create protected area maps that meet science-based guidelines for inclusion in legislation that specifies and protects marine environments.
