Maritime Spatial Planning (July 2010)
Maritime spatial planning is about planning of sea space and can help us manage our seas and oceans sustainably. In the process, it can help us create new jobs and economic opportunities, meet our targets for reducing our carbon footprint and keep our seas healthy for generations to come. It seeks to balance sectoral interests and use space more efficiently, thereby contributing to the long-term sustainable use of marine resources. Some EU Member States have considerable experience in planning and managing the use of maritime space. The European Commission is building on this experience and working with Member States and stakeholders towards the implementation of a coherent set of principles for maritime spatial planning across the EU.

Coastal Mapping - Whilst considerable progress has been made in mapping the topography of Europe's offshore waters and making the data available through digital terrain models, it is intrinsically more expensive to measure the depth of water in shallow coastal waters because of instrument characteristics and because there is a need to join up with land surveys.
