  • The CCM2 database covers the entire European continent, including the Atlantic islands, Iceland and Turkey. It includes a hierarchical set of river segments and catchments based on the Strahler order, a lake layer and structured hydrological feature codes based on the Pfafstetter system. This dataset is a subset of Catchment Characterisation and Modelling (CCM) data version 2.1 provided by EU Joint Research Centre (JRC). The CCM2 database covers the entire European continent, including the Atlantic islands, Iceland and Turkey.

For further details, see http://ccm.jrc.ec.europa.eu/php/index.php?action=view=23 The catchment area data contained in CCM2 Geodatabase table Seaoutlets was subsetted by HELCOM secretariat using selection criteria to include data only within Baltic Sea catchment area.

  • The dataset contains sand and gravel extraction activity during 2011–2015. The dataset is based on data submission by HELCOM Contacting Parties in response to data request. The dataset is quality assured and contains data from all the Baltic Sea countries. Common extraction sites with information on volume of extraction was included in the dataset. The other extraction sites (building sites, exclusive sites) had only summed data for all the sites, as volumes of extraction in specific sites was classified as confidential information. For these sites the volumes was calculated from reported sum of "other extraction areas". The amount was equally divided between corresponding extraction areas. For some common extraction sites a shared amount was reported.

  • Dataset represent urban land use (urban areas) around Baltic Sea coast. The resolution of the data is 250 m x 250 m. The dataset is constructed from CORINE Land Cover (CLC) 2006 for EU countries and from Open street map (OSM) open source data in Russia. Dataset is based on data collated for the HELCOM Second Holistic Assessment of the Ecosystem health of the Baltic Sea. The dataset covers the whole catchment area of the Baltic sea.
