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.
