Maritime transport - Fairways - harbour boundaries
Fairways are indicated through the Regulation dated 30 November 2009, no. 1477 (Regulation on fairways). The entire coast of Norway is currently covered by a standardised reference system of various fairway categories. The fairway structure includes the network of maritime transport arteries and is a national geographical reference system for measures within administration, planning, development and operational activities in the coastal zone. More about the fairway structure: http://www.kystverket.no/Maritim-infrastruktur/Farleder/Farledsstrukturen/ The dataset shows the boundaries of the 32 ports listed in the Fairways Regulation. The main and secondary watercourses usually stop at the entrance to the port area, but at these 32 ports, the fairways and therefore the government's responsibility follows all the way in to the quay.
