This dataset includes digitized deep-water route, traffic separation schemes, precautionary areas and inshore traffic zones in the Baltic Sea as defined in the 9th edition of the Ships Routing Guide (2008) of the International Maritime Organization. It was updated in 2017. The update includes information about new traffic separation schemes and deep-water routes, amendments to the existing traffic separation schemes and establishment of new two-way routes which are not included in the original 2008 routeing guide, but were adopted by the 54th, 55th, 57th, and 58th session of the Sub-Committee on the Safety of Navigation of the IMO, and 3rd session of IMO's Sub-Committee Meeting on the Navigation, Communications, Search and Rescue.
Administrative boundaries of countries inside the Baltic Sea catchment area. The source is Open Street Maps data downloaded from OSM Boundaries Map (https://wambachers-osm.website/boundaries/)
Borders of territorial waters (12 nautical miles from baseline) in the Baltic Sea. It is based on a dataset by the European Environment Agency (https://www.eea.europa.eu/data-and-maps/data/maritime-boundaries). The Russian borders and some small segments are based in OpenStreetMap. See the attribute table for details. The Swedish territorial waters file was edited in November 2019. The source was the Swedish Maritime Administration (https://www.sjofartsverket.se/sv/Maritima-Tjanster/Havsgranser/)
Total (monthly, and 5 year average) discharge from hydropower dams (m3/s). Data includes the water that passes the turbines as well as the water not passing the turbines. The data was made available by HELCOM Contracting Parties in response to data request. The data was received from Estonia, Finland and Sweden. The activity was declared as not relevant in Denmark, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland. Data contains only those hydropower dams that are situated closest to the Baltic coast (less than 40 km), are the first ones from the coast in the river network and have a direct connection to the Baltic Sea trough river. Swedish data is a combination of actual measurements and modelling. Modelled data have been calculated with s-hype2012_version_3_0_0. These data are also presented online at http://vattenwebb.smhi.se/regulations/. Please note that data from 2015 is provisional and may be subject to revisions. Attribute specification and units: X_Long: X (East) coordinate point Y_Lat: Y (North) coordinate point Country: Country (EE=Estonia, FI=Finland, SE=Sweden) ID: Name or ID number of the hydropower dam AVG_year: A calculated yearly average discharge (m3/s) (2011-2015) jan_2011 – dec_2015 : Monthly discharge (m3/s)
