QUESTIONS THIS PRACTICE MAY HELP ANSWER:

  • How is the Portuguese MSP Situation Plan defined? 
  • What spatial data is applied when drafting the Portuguese MSP Situation Plan?
  • What are the main regulations in force in the Portuguese waters?
  • Where do marine activities occur in the Portuguese waters? 

IMPLEMENTATION CONTEXT:

This geoportal has been prepared in the context of the Portuguese Marine Spatial Planning Policy approved in December 2019, under the authority of the Directorate General for Natural Resources, Safety and Maritime Services (DGRM). The DGRM is responsible for managing the information relating to the subdivisions of the continent and the extended continental shelf.

ASPECTS / OBJECTIVES:

The geoportal is created in order to provide access to the Portuguese MSP Situation Plan approved in December 2019, as well as to the spatial data applied for its design.

METHOD:

The geoportal integrates spatial data produced by various entities (i.e. DGRM, IH, APA, IPMA, ICNF etc.). 

MAIN OUTPUTS / RESULTS:

The website provides a visual perspective of the main Portuguese maritime spatial data (including the environmental data, as well as information on activities, regulations and jurisdictions).  

TRANSFERABILITY:

Although the geoportal is specific to Portugal, its structure could be applied to other national or regional geoportals.
