The home of European Seabed Habitat Maps

The EMODnet Seabed Habitats website provides a permanent single portal for accessing seabed habitat data in Europe. This includes the EMODnet broad-scale seabed habitat map for Europe(AKA EUSeaMap) and habitat maps from surveys across Europe.


The EMODnet portal for Seabed Habitats is a free resource for marine habitat data in Europe

Find out about the EMODnet Seabed Habitats project.

You can view and download habitat maps for European seas through the interactive mapping portal.

Data includes broad-scale predicted habitat maps and detailed habitat maps from surveys.

"Sensor Web Enablement" and how to join the European operational oceanography data exchange EU SeaDataCloud "Sensor Web Enablement" and EMODnet Physics, 26/04/2018, Sopot, Poland
Thu, 19 Apr 2018 04:00

Observation and measurement data is a very important source of information
to capture the past and current state of the oceans. The  easy sharing of
observation data is an important factor to support  scientists in their
work. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC)  provides a family of standards
specifications called ‘Sensor Web  Enablement’ (SWE) which includes detailed
information about the  sensors making measurements and the platforms that
carry the sensors  using the Sensor Model Language (SensorML), general
models and XML encodings for sensor Observations and Measurements (O&M), and
a  protocol to provide access to observations from sensors and sensor
systems in a standard way (Sensor Observation Service (SOS)).
Within the framework of EU SeaDataCloud and together with other EU   funded
projects a set of marine profiles (SensorML and O&M models)   for a range of
marine instruments and platforms have been formulated  that can serve as a
common basis for developments in multiple
 projects and organisations.
 At the colloquium an overview will be given of the present state of   SWE
developments and how these can be applied in practice by network
operators. Moreover information will be given of EMODnet Physics  which
builds upon CMEMS-INSTAC, EuroGOOS and SeaDataNet to give
overview and access to operational oceanography platforms and their
resulting data sets.
The aim is to make managers and technicians from IMGW more aware about SWE
developments and opportunities. Moreover, to discuss  participation of IMGW
in the European operational oceanography data exchange.
