First pan-European shoreline-migration map since 2004

The new EMODnet Geology shoreline-migration map allows users to visualise pan-European coastal behaviour for 2007-2017 at different spatial scales. A built-in search and zoom functionality allows online users to distinguish areas of landward migration (erosion or submergence), stability, and seaward migration (accretion or emergence).

Webinar and detailed method of the EMODnet vessel density maps

In March 2017, EMODnet Human Activities was mandated to create vessel density maps of EU waters showing the average number of vessels of certain type (cargo, passenger, fishing etc.) in a given period within a grid cell. Vessel density maps are by far the most requested GIS data product by EMODnet Human Activities users, according to a survey carried out in 2016. The maps went live on EMODnet Human activities for visualisation and download on 11 March 2019.

Contribute to the evaluation of EMODnet

The European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet) contributes to the EU's integrated maritime policy. It was set up as a flagship project to prepare a seamless multi-resolution digital seabed map of European waters by 2020. Following the Green Paper "Marine Knowledge 2020" It had been estimated that public bodies in European countries were spending over one billion euro a year in observing the seas and oceans including work by hydrographic organisations, geological surveys, scientists and environmental agencies.

New insights into European maritime traffic with the EMODnet vessel density maps

For the first time those responsible for monitoring shipping emissions, identifying the best routes to lay pipelines and cables, assessing the impact of fishing on the seafloor or planning offshore wind farms can have free and open access to maps and the underlying raster files of vessel activity.
The new EMODnet digital vessel density maps, released today, allows users to visualise vessel movement patterns and the distribution of maritime traffic in European waters.
