Marine Themes Vector

Marine Themes Vector

Marine Themes Vector is a comprehensive, flexible and intelligent marine mapping product for visualisation and analysis. It is derived from authoritative material obtained from sources including the UKHO and other hydrographic offices. Data attributes have been designed with analysis and querying in mind. Chart boundaries have been removed to create a seamless, simplified data set across charts.

Marine Themes Vector has been engineered for easy data loading with features grouped by theme:

  • Elevation
  • Shipwrecks and Obstructions
  • Industrial Facilities
  • Transport
  • Administrative and Management Units
  • Geographical Regions

Marine Themes Digital Elevation Model (DEM)

Marine Themes Digital Elevation Model (DEM) is a surface model, comprising detailed and accurate data of the seabed. This product utilises the most recent commercial single and multi-beam survey and LIDAR data available. All available surveys are assessed and carefully selected in a deconfliction process. The model can be read directly into GIS and offers many benefits including an attributed coastline, improving the accuracy of the model at the coastal boundary, and the application of an improved interpolation method for a contiguous natural seabed shape.

Marine Themes DEM is available at two resolutions: a 1 arc second model supplied in 0.5 degree tiles and a 6 arc second model supplied in 2 degree tiles. A coverage layer is also provided which provides details of the data sources used in the model, ensuring the source of the data is always clearly defined.

Raster Charts / Raster Charts XL

Raster Charts are electronic versions of the familiar nautical paper charts and are ideal for use as a base map or a simple nautical chart background. Raster Charts are derived from raster-based material obtained under licence from the UKHO and other hydrographic offices. They provide cartographic familiarity for users who work with nautical charts and are ready for immediate use in GIS and other software. While not suitable for navigational use, they are useful as a contextual map for a variety of marine applications such as the monitoring of ports, vessels and platforms.

Raster Charts XL (eXcluding Land) are a version of the nautical charts with the land removed, making them ready to be paired with the user’s preferred land mapping.
