Marine landscapes

Dataset

The data set shows the landscape classification in the sea areas. In our mapping, landscape is defined as "large geographical areas with a visually homogeneous character”. Marine landscape mapping describes the major features of the topography on the seabed. We use an automated GIS classification following the definitions of Naturtyper i Norge (NiN, Nature types in Norway). The classification is based on bathymetry of 50 meters resolution.

Usage

The landscape map is part of the nature type mapping in Norway. Good habitat maps are a premise for being able to make comprehensive plans for the use and protection of nature. Map of marine landscapes can also be used as basis for decision making in the overall land use and environmental planning, vulnerability analyses, habitat mapping etc., or as geomorphological overview map.
