This is a free resource for viewing and downloading seabed habitat maps in European waters. It contains a broad-scale habitat map for all of Europe (known as EUSeaMap) and smaller detailed habitat maps from surveys where they exist.
The broad-scale habitat map (EUSeaMap) is produced by the EMODnet Seabed Habitats project (part of the European Marine Observation Data Network, EMODnet
). A consortium of international partners
, led by the JNCC (during Phase 1 of the project, 2009-2012) and by IFREMER (during Phase 2, 2013-2016), developed data layers and thresholds to allow the modelling of habitats according to the EUNIS
To view the layers on your desktop GIS application or another web mapping portal using Web Map Service (WMS)
