The project includes a data portal as a demonstrator, accessible at https://simatlantic.mspdata.eu/
This demonstrator gathers data and information in connection with the planning of maritime areas. It disseminates in particular geospatial information relating to the marine spatial plans of England, Spain, France, Ireland, Northern Ireland and Portugal and "proof" data used to establish the plans, when available and interoperable with the too used.
A survey is established regarding data organisation and issues in the Atlantic region. This survey contributes to understanding how states produce and disseminate MSP data, identifying their spatial data and service needs, including those that would facilitate cooperation on MSP cross-border issues.
MSP plans access
31st of March 2021 is the deadline fixed by the European Directive on maritime spatial planning for European countries to establish maritime spatial plans concerning their waters.
The table belows informs on the status of the MSP national plans availability on 20/11/2020.
MSP data sharing in England, France, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Portugal and Spain
A factsheet is established regarding each country of SIMAtlantic Projet. It brings together a number of information relating to MSP and to the operation of the national geoportal, technical choices, available sources and data accessibility.
Review of conclusions on data use and sharing from SIMCelt, SIMNORAT, SIMWESTMED and SEANSE
As a starting point for activities related to data use and sharing in SIMAtlantc project, a review of the shared conclusions and insights from previous projects was conducted.
