Definition: 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.
