Service Description
The EEA coastline dataset is created for detailed analysis with a Minimum Mapping Unit of e.g. 1:100000, for geographical Europe. The coastline is a hybrid product obtained from satellite imagery from two projects: 1) EUHYDRO (Pan-European hydrographic and drainage database) [http://land.copernicus.eu/pan-european/satellite-derived-products/eu-hydro/view] and 2) GSHHG (A Global Self-consistent, Hierarchical, High-resolution Geography Database)[http://www.soest.hawaii.edu/pwessel/gshhg/]. The defining criteria was altitude level = 0 from EUDEM [http://land.copernicus.eu/pan-european/satellite-derived-products/eu-dem/view].The EEA coastline dataset is created for detailed analysis with a Minimum Mapping Unit of e.g. 1:100000, for geographical Europe.

Marine regions and subregions of MSFD Article 4 (MapServer)
Title Marine_regions_subregions
Author
Subject The MSFD defines four marine regions where the Directive is to be implemented, among which 2 of them are further divided in 4 subregions each. This map represents those regions and subregions, and the metadata provide the necessary context for the use of the map and the common understanding of the delimitation of the features.

Service Description
In the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD), four marine regions are listed (art. 4). The North-east Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea marine regions are both further divided into four subregions. The marine regions and subregions include: The Baltic SeaThe North-east Atlantic OceanThe Greater North Sea, including the Kattegat and the English ChannelThe Celtic SeasThe Bay of Biscay and the Iberian CoastMacaronesiaThe Mediterranean SeaThe Western Mediterranean SeaThe Adriatic SeaThe Ionian Sea and the Central Mediterranean SeaThe Aegean-Levantine SeaThe Black SeaThis map has been developed to support DG Environment and EU Member States in their implementation of the MSFD. It represents the current state of understanding of the marine regions and subregions and is subject to amendment in light of any new information which may be received.The primary aim of this map is the geometric delineation of the marine regions and subregions. The secondary aim is to establish a common understanding of marine boundaries and thus aid the streamlining of obligations under EU legislation, e.g. coordination between Member States, work establishment of monitoring programmes, establishment of programmes of measures, EEA indicator and assessment efforts and ‘Research and Technological Development’ (RTD) initiatives to be as relevant as possible for policy processes aiming at implementing an ecosystem-based approach to management. Lastly, the map can aid the harmonization between regions as required under other EU legislation and policies, by Regional Sea Conventions, International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) Ecoregions and other regional delineations. The aim is not to pre-empt any official discussions on maritime boundaries under UNCLOS.The delineation has been developed since 2010 based on multiple inputs from Member State representatives participating in groups defined under the MSFD Common Implementation Strategy, reporting under the MSFD Initial Assessment
Description
The present map provides the delimitation of the marine regions and subregions listed in MSFD Article 4. The map and associated GIS data files should be used on the following basis: 1) They are intended for the sole purposes of supporting the implementation of the MSFD by Member States, stakeholders and the European Commission and its agencies; 2)They provide the boundaries of the marine regions and subregions, as listed in MSFD Article 4. In accordance with MSFD Article 4(1), Member States shall, when implementing the MSFD, take due account of the fact that their marine waters form an integral part of these marine regions. The map and associated GIS data files are solely meant to depict these marine regions and subregions that Member States shall take due account of, including in relation to transboundary effects on the quality of the marine environment of third States in the same marine region or subregion, in accordance with MSFD Article 2(1); 3) They are not intended to provide boundaries of the marine waters of Member States as defined under MSFD Article 3(1). This means that the map in Figure I and associated GIS data files do not represent the geographic scope of application of the MSFD as the MSFD only applies to Member States' marine waters, which are understood to lie within the marine regions and subregions. Further, in those areas of Member States' marine waters, the map makes no distinction between the jurisdiction over both the water column and the seabed or only the seabed; 4) As such the map should not be understood as representing international marine borders. To this end, the following disclaimer will accompany the map: "This map serves as a working tool only and shall not be considered as an official or legally-binding map representing marine borders in accordance with international law. This map shall be used without prejudice to the agreements that will be concluded between Member States or between Member States and non-EU states in respect of t
