Project 5: Integrating Marine Spatial Data: Best Practice in Modelling and Decision Support Tools

Project Outputs

Project 5 reviewed the available modelling and decision support tools for MSP.  These may relate to data provision, pressures and impacts of human activities.  This project identified best practice technical tools in the Irish context.  The project delivered focused studies to identify and evaluate best practice models used in, or of relevance to, spatial data management and integration.  The project provided technical advice as to how to add value to the spatially represented data.
