This project improved understanding of what marine data are available to form a basis for improved MSP-related products and decision support tools. It leveraged current and future operational programmes through reuse of data collected, without incurring the otherwise substantial data acquisition costs, meaning that data can be more easily integrated and reused. It led to better definition and greater clarity as to the origin and quality of underlying data and information being used in decision making.
Improvements to data processes are needed to underpin new MSP-related products and services.
