Over the last two and half years, the Alliance Gulf of Mexico Monitoring Community of Practice (MCoP) has provided a forum for coordination of monitoring and mapping within the larger restoration community. The MCoP was a major component of the RESTORE Council Monitoring and Assessment Program (CMAP) and contributed significantly to developing the CMAP Inventory.
