    Data holdings of individual modelled maps of specific habitats. These models have been collated by EMODnet Seabed Habitats partners from a variety of sources. Ownership of the individual models is retained by the original owners, for more information please see the individual metadata record tied to the model, which can be seen in the data layer. Models are available individually through EMODnet Seabed Habitats' "maplibrary" OGC service endpoints: For WMS (view) access to models, please use https://ows.emodnet-seabedhabitats.eu/geoserver/emodnet_view_maplibrary/wms? For WCS (download) access to open models, please use https://ows.emodnet-seabedhabitats.eu/geoserver/emodnet_open_maplibrary/wcs?

    The dataset provides full-coverage maps of the habitats and biotopes in the German Baltic Sea at a resolution of 1 x 1 km for the entire region and at 50 x 50 m resolution in specific areas. We combined geological and biological surveys to map the seabed and collected extensive data to classify different habitats and their associated benthic communities. Using newly established national guidelines and predictive habitat modelling, we produced highly accurate maps. For upload to EMODnet four separate maps were made: - Broad Habitat Types according to the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD). - Annex I Habitat types - Habitat types classified according to the Baltic Sea-wide HELCOM underwater biotope and habitat classification (HUB) - other habitat types, OHTs for German marine waters include biotope types according to S30 of the German Federal Nature Conservation Act (BNatSchG), according to the European Habitats Directive (92/43/EEC), as well as the Baltic Sea-wide HELCOM Red List types

    The Global Mangrove Watch (GMW) was initiated as part of the JAXA Kyoto & Carbon Initiative in 2011. It is led by Aberystwyth University and solo Earth Observation, in collaboration with Wetlands International, the International Water Management Institute and the UN Environment World Conservation Monitoring Centre (U.K.). The African part is supported by DOB Ecology through the Mangrove Capital Africa project. The GMW aims to provide geospatial information about mangrove extent and changes to the Ramsar Convention, national wetland practitioners, decision makers and NGOs. It is part of the Ramsar Science and Technical Review Panel (STRP) work plan for 2016-2018 and a Pilot Project to the Ramsar Global Wetlands Observation System (GWOS), which is implemented under the GEO-Wetlands Initiative. The primary objective of the GMW has been to provide countries lacking a national mangrove monitoring system with first cut mangrove extent and change maps, to help safeguard against further mangrove forest loss and degradation. The GMW has generated a global baseline map of mangroves for 2010 using ALOS PALSAR and Landsat (optical) data, and changes from this baseline for epochs between 1996 and 2020 derived from JERS-1 SAR, ALOS PALSAR and ALOS-2 PALSAR-2. Annual maps are planned from 2018 and onwards.

    This is a compilation of OSPAR habitat polygon data for the northeast Atlantic submitted by OSPAR contracting parties. The compilation is coordinated by the UK's Joint Nature Conservation Committee, working with a representative from each of the OSPAR coastal contracting parties.This public dataset does not contain records relating to sensitive species (e.g. Ostrea edulis) in specific areas, or where data are restricted from public release by the owner's use limitations. The original version (v2022) was published in September 2023. The current version (v2022.1) was published in March 2024 - changes made involved removing duplicate records.

    This is a compilation of OSPAR habitat point data for the northeast Atlantic submitted by OSPAR contracting parties. The compilation is coordinated by the UK's Joint Nature Conservation Committee, working with a representative from each of the OSPAR coastal contracting parties. This public dataset does not contain records relating to sensitive species (e.g. Ostrea edulis) in specific areas, or where data are restricted from public release by the owner's use limitations. The original version (v2022) was published in September 2023. The current version (v2022.1) was published in March 2024 - changes made affected records of habitat type 'Zostera beds' in the UK.

    A survey by JNCC in partnership with Cefas to Wight Barfleur Reef Special Area of Conservation. Located in the central English Channel, Wight Barfleur Reef is characterised by a series of well-defined exposed bedrock ridges, up to 5 m high, together with areas of flat, smooth mudstone and sandstone with overlying coarse sediment (gravels, cobbles and boulders), which in places forms stony reef, which has been designated to protect the EU Habitats Directive (1992) Annex I habitat feature Reefs.

    This dataset contains the findings from the analyses of data gathered during a seabed survey of Scanner Pockmark SCI. The pockmark and unit pockmark features present are a series of crater-like depressions on the seafloor. These structures consist of large blocks, pavements, slabs and smaller fragments of carbonate rock, including methane-derived authigenic carbonate (MDAC). The features are classified as the Directives Annex I habitat Submarine structures made by leaking gases even in the absence of MDAC as the qualifying feature has been recorded in the past, and the presence of leaking gases is inferred from high reflectance backscatter data.

    Natural England contracted Footprint Ecology to undertake a vegetation survey of Shingle and associated structures across a range of sites in the Solent area of southern England in 2013. This was designed to be at least partially comparable to the original survey of Solent vegetated shingle sites carried out by Cox and Crowther in 2000 (Cox and Crowther 2001). The methodology was based on the National Vegetation Classification, with additional communities identified by Cox and Crowther. Data were collected using NVC quadrats across the surveyed sites. These quadrats were geolocated using hand held GPS. Vegetated shingle communities were found at all the sites visited.

    This map was produced using data from the South-west Regional Coastal Monitoring Programme, commissioned by Teignbridge District Council, in this case covering the coastline between Portland Bill and Rame Head. Through conducting a range of surveys including aerial, bathymetric, wave and tidal surveys, and ecological mapping, the programme aims to promote and implement a repeatable, standard, and cost-effective method of monitoring the coastal environment. This map is the result of the ecological mapping component of the programme, and the habitat data is presented as vector polygons using the EUNIS 2007-11 habitat classification scheme.

    This dataset includes the findings from the seabed survey of the Braemar Pockmarks and Scanner Pockmark Sites of Community Importance (SCI), as defined in the European Commission Habitats Directive 92/43/EEC. The pockmark features present within both of the SCIs are a series of crater-like depressions on the seafloor, and can include the Directives Annex I habitat Submarine structures made by leaking gases. These structures consist of large blocks, pavements, slabs and smaller fragments of carbonate rock, including methane-derived authigenic carbonate (MDAC).
