CONTIS is a novel ocean data base developed by the BSH which shows at a glance
the wide range of present and future uses of the marine environment. The
CONTIS geodata, e.g. on shipping, exploitation of resources, planned offshore
wind farms or environmentally sensitive areas, are available as digital maps
providing concentrated information. The system visualizes, inter alia, the
areal extent of individual uses and interfaces with other users as well as
sea areas which are still free of any uses. CONTIS thus is an optimal tool
allowing early identification of possible conflicts of interest among different
uses. The Continental Shelf Information System CONTIS focuses on the German
continental shelf and Exclusive Economic Zone.
