One of the unique features of EMODnet globally is the multidisciplinary nature of the data that it aggregates and makes available. The EMODnet thematic sub-portals create data layers and products ranging from information on physical oceanography to seabed habitats to human activities. However, users increasingly want to work across disciplines and visualise or combine these multi-thematic data layers.
That is why EMODnet has been working so hard behind the scenes, to harmonise their data layers, so that users can now view and combine these diverse layers on a single interface. The new EMODnet Geoviewer is now online and contains layers from every thematic portal. So, for example, maybe you are interested to see the seabed substrate or the mean water depth beneath the mariculture farms in your area? This and much more is now possible. Why don’t you take a look, try it out and send us your feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org!
