Continental Shelf Research Information System

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.
