Intelligent Marine and Coastal Mapping Data

A basic requirement for implementing Geographical Information Systems (GIS) is the availability of digital base mapping.

On land, suitable datasets are generally available from national mapping agencies. However, for marine and coastal areas this is not the case.

As a result, OceanWise personnel have pioneered the processes necessary to re-purpose hydrographic office data designed purely for navigation. Over 10 years of work and experience has culminated in OceanWise producing the innovative and user-friendly Marine Themes and Raster Chart datasets.

Marine Themes is our Vector data product depicting marine geographic features, Marine Themes Digital Elevation Model (DEM) is a detailed model of the seabed, currently covering North West Europe, while the Raster Charts are quick background data. We have demos available for all our web-enabled data products, find them using the link below.
