This guide shows which geo-data are available and indicates their characteristics as well as limitations. One finding was that there are more geodata available for marine areas than expected. Mostly these are mapped or modelled seabed and water characteristics, but there are also other kinds of data, such as transportation routes, utility-lines and areas protecting valuable habitats. All of these are summarised in the inventory of geodata.
