OceanWise Extends Marine Mapping Dataset

Industry Database

Independent marine data management and publishing specialist OceanWise has further refined Marine Themes, its leading marine mapping dataset, by replacing chart-derived data with definitive datasets from bona fide sources wherever possible.

The company said the sets are generally more up to date and accurate than those whose source is often the original paper chart.

The latest dataset to benefit from this approach, it adds, includes Traffic Separation Schemes (TSS), Particularly Sensitive Sea Areas (PSSA) and other areas adopted by the IMO. The sets are acquired from approved IMO documentation and converted under licence into GIS-compatible formats. They are normally updated within five working days of proposed new or amended areas being published and are therefore available to value-added publishers and end-users as soon as they are adopted.
