This project built on the work done from the first project covering Data Discovery, Collation and Gap Analysis for Spatial Representation. This project specifically aimed to provide up-to-date spatial and temporal information by filling in gaps in knowledge required to support MSP, regarding human activities, pressures, resource distribution etc. This advanced marine data and knowledge in Ireland and was a fundamental exercise for successful implementation of MSP.
