Digimap Goes to Sea: new resource provides marine and coastal zone data

A major new online resource which makes available marine and coastal zone digital data from SeaZone Solutions Ltd is now available. The maps and data Marine Digimap delivers provide a fascinating insight into the broad range of factors that make up the marine and coastal environment and influence its exploitation.

The new resource, made available by JISC Collections through EDINA’s Digimap platform, is very timely. The Marine Bill White Paper published last year and a forthcoming Climate Change Bill demonstrate the ever increasing concern over flooding and rising sea level which makes access to quality information about marine and coastal environments more important than ever.

Further details can be found here.
