Reference layers

Reference layers icon

Reference layers or datasets provide the real world context or marine ‘base map’ for coastal data and information. This catalogue of reference layers provides access to project based and maintained datasets.

The layers are categorised by INSPIRE themes indicated by a traffic light system. A green light means that the data can be downloaded under the Open Government Licence.

The goal is to achieve a green status for all entries in the catalogue and to extend this to other datasets as they are added in future.
