Sea use maps

CONTIS Information System

The Continental Shelf Information System (CONTIS), with its semantic and technical modular structure, contains thematic geodata of the marine environment, for example from the fields of marine sectoral and marine spatial planning. The various uses of the marine environment are processed in CONTIS with corresponding geodata and visualised in maps with current and planned types of use. The visualisation of the sea use areas concentrates on the German continental shelf and the EEZ. Thematic geodata from other authorities, such as nature conservation areas, sediment extraction areas and military training areas, are also available.

The various sea use maps can be downloaded here.
