for the Wadden Sea Region

WSF Planning Portal based on GIS in cooperation with EUCC-D

The Wadden Sea Region (WSR) Planning Portal, based on a GIS, is an innovative application mapping the WSR including the EEZs of The Netherlands, Germany and Denmark. The Planning Portal has a focus on existing and partly planned activities in coastal and off-shore areas. It contains a wide range of uses, facilities and protection demands and is designed to meet the information needs of integrated management and marine spatial planning.

The Wadden Sea Forum e.V. in co-operation with EUCC – Die Küsten Union Deutschland e.V (EUCC-D) maintains this Planning Portal. Our goal is to keep this information up-to-date and accurate. Therefore, we strive for a broad update to provide most current information about the use and protection schemes within the Wadden Sea Region.

For this, we need a sound budget to collect the information and to transfer these into the GIS system, hosted at our partner in Rostock. We are still looking for financial support to get the new version of our Planning Portal implemented.
