New Interactive Web Mapping App – The European Atlas of the Seas, an Interactive marine web mapping application from the European Commission

Visitors to Seafood Expo Global in Brussels next month will have the opportunity to experiment with an interactive web mapping application on the European Commission stand (7-1411), on 8 May 2019.

The European Atlas of the Seas is an interactive web-based tool available for the general public, non-expert professionals and schools in the 24 official EU languages.

The Atlas hosts a wealth of information about Europe’s marine environment and related human activities, covering topics such as nature, tourism, security, energy, passenger transport, sea bottom, sea level rise, fish consumption, and much more. Users now have access to an enriched catalogue of more than 200 map layers.

The data provided is based on the collection and management of European marine observation, originating primarily from the European Commission and its agencies (Eurostat, the European Environment Agency, the Joint Research Centre, Copernicus) and from the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet).

Visitors of the Seafood Expo Global will be able to navigate through the web mapping application and create their own marine and coastal maps. They will also present new features such as the print, share and embed options. The European Commission and EMODnet staff will be present to answer all your questions. They look forward to welcoming you at the stand 7-1411 on 8 May 2019!

If you are not able to attend the Seafood fair, you can also meet the EC at the Open Days of the European Commission on 4 May 2019, in the Berlaymont building on Rond-Point Schuman.
