European Atlas of the Seas

The European Atlas of the Seas provides information about Europe’s marine environment. Users can view predefined and ready to use maps, covering topics such as environment, tourism, security, energy, transport, litter, sea bottom, fishing activity, aquaculture, and much more.

Users can also benefit from an enriched catalogue with more than 250 map layers, covering a wide range of topics, to explore, collate and create their own maps. These maps can be printed, shared and embedded in articles or presentations. The Atlas is the ideal tool for schools, researchers and professionals, or anyone wishing to know more about the European seas and its coastal areas.

Stay on board! Do not miss what is happening.  Follow us on Twitter!
Each week, a new “Map of the week” highlighting an interesting map layer is showcased in the Maritime Forum. Dive in and explore your Ocean!
