EMODnet Bathymetry is pleased to announce the release of the latest version of the EMODnet Bathymetry Digital Terrain Model (DTM). This improved DTM provides users with even greater resolution and coverage of bathymetry across European seas and beyond.
EMODnet’s new World Base Layer Service (EBWBL) provides a fast and easy access to worldwide bathymetric information, enabling marine knowledge users including industry, scientists, coastal managers, students and the general public, to access high-resolution representations of seabed features from their own computer.
At the start of each New Year, it has become our tradition to take a moment to reflect on the past, take stock of our achievements and look forward to what the coming year will bring for our growing network of partners and users.
As EMODnet marks 10 years since its initiation in 2009, experts from EMODnet and across the global ocean observation, monitoring and data communities were in Hawai’i for the decadal Conference OceanObs’19. In its third edition, OceanObs’19 has expanded to 1500 participants, with 2480 authors contributing to 128 Community White Papers, 600 posters and 60 exhibits from academia, industry and management, all at the Hawai’i Convention Center, Honolulu.
As we do every year in January, we take stock of what we have achieved the previous year and look forward to what you can expect from us in the coming year. This time we have many updates for you as 2018 was a very productive year for EMODnet, with many achievements in the first full year of the third phase of EMODnet development (2017-2020).
The European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet) launches the EMODnet for business campaign, a full month dedicated to the importance of open marine data and how it supports blue growth and industry.
