      offering comprehensive data and digital mapping (marine and coastal zone) to
      help organisations manage their information in view of new regulations.

      SeaZone’s intelligent marine mapping eases management of Marine Bill

      SeaZone is offering a ready-made information solution to help organisations
      affected by the UK government’s Marine and Coastal Access Bill. SeaZone
      HydroSpatial provides easy access to a wide range of marine and coastal zone
      information to assist in managing the new regulations. HydroSpatial is a
      specially developed intelligent digital marine map with multiple topic
      layers to which additional data can be added in line with the specific
      requirements of the Marine Bill.

      The Marine Bill will address the need for delivering more effective and
      sustainable marine management. The Government recognises that Geographic
      Information Systems (GIS) are the best way of providing access to complex
      data and that this information is crucial to Marine Spatial Planning. Maps
      are also essential to the planning process and to communicate plans

      HydroSpatial is the world’s first digital marine map and is becoming the
      recognised standard for marine mapping in the UK and overseas. Within
      HydroSpatial, SeaZone maintains and updates a comprehensive database of best
      available, authoritative marine and coastal zone information. This provides
      a single and consistent source of marine mapping that is being improved over

      “The Marine Bill acknowledges the need for authoritative, comprehensive and
      maintained marine information as essential in delivering effective evidence
      based decisions within the marine environment. SeaZone HydroSpatial is the
      ideal starting point,” says Dr Mike Osborne, Managing Director of SeaZone.
      “SeaZone already supplies over 600 customers with a range of data products,
      software and services designed to improve data management and decision
      making in the marine environment and coastal zone.”

      This approach is enabling organisations to collaborate in the use of
      existing data and expertise to avoid replication of effort and expense.
      HydroSpatial is designed for use within Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
      and is the ideal data platform for building digital map layers and records
      to meet future Marine Bill requirements.

      The Marine and Coastal Access Bill aims to establish conservation zones
      around the UK together with a marine planning system, reform of inshore
      fisheries, streamlining of licensing, establishment of a Marine Management
      Organisation and coastal access provision.
