The dataset contains the digitized Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) boundaries in the Baltic Sea based on the documents submitted by the Baltic Sea countries to the United Nations. These submissions, which are available online (http://www.un.org/depts/los/LEGISLATIONANDTREATIES/europe.htm), include nautical charts, maritime boundary delimitation agreements, and treaties between different countries (containing the agreed coordinates of the boundaries). In case of non-existing submission, the older EEZ version was used resulting from various HELCOM activities. The dataset has been amended with bilateral agreements, when available.
