You may have noticed some map background images used in a slightly mysterious way throughout the website. There is somewhat of a theme to how they appear in certain locations. But we also leave it to the reader to make their own interpretations.
We definately chose the theme of maps to align with the concepts of finding the right definition and insights from the mass of information you can collect with digital technology.
However we also wanted take some time to highlight an interesting european project The European Atlas of the Seas
The European Atlas of the Seas provides information about Europe’s marine environment. Users can view predefined and ready to use maps, covering topics such as environment, tourism, security, energy, transport, litter, sea bottom, fishing activity, aquaculture, and much more.
Users can also benefit from an enriched catalogue with more than 250 map layers, covering a wide range of topics, to explore, collate and create their own maps. These maps can be printed, shared and embedded in articles or presentations. The Atlas is the ideal tool for schools, researchers and professionals, or anyone wishing to know more about the European seas and its coastal areas.
We think this is a great resource open to all and well worth a mention, with lots of topically relevant information about caring for our environment.
