MESH project archive

The EMODnet Seabed Habitats portal builds upon the outputs from a very successful INTERREG project on habitat mapping called "Development of a framework for Mapping European Seabed Habitats" (MESH). The MESH project produced some of the first broad-scale habitats maps in Europe accessible through an online interactive map, habitat mapping guidelines and the MESH confidence assessment for habitat maps, amongst other MESH products.

The most useful outputs of the MESH project can be found via the EMODnet Seabed Habitats website:

The MESH project website is archived in its entirety within the UK national web archives.

The MESH project ran between 2004 and 2008 and was made up of a consortium of twelve partners from five European countries led by the UK’s Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC), with financial support from the EC’s INTERREG IIIB NWE Programme.
