This is a dataset of places of refuge areas reported by HELCOM member countries by year 2011. For Finland, Sweden, Germany and Poland coastline can be used as a place of refuge if decided. These places of refuge areas on the coastline were formed by creating 10 km buffer from the coastline.
This is a dataset of designated places of refuge reported by HELCOM member countries by year 2011.
Digitized from Mariners’ Routeing Guide Baltic Sea ISBN 978-3-89871-771-7 (http://www.helcom.dk/map/). The line features are divided in categories, indicated by the the ZONE_TYPE attribute: 0 - Deep water route areas; 1 - Deep water route center line; 4 - Recommended route center; 6 - Traffic separation line; and 7 - Traffic separation scheme.
The dataset contains data on bridges and other constructions. The dataset is constructed from Open Street Map “roads” shapefiles downloaded through Geofabrik by extracting all features where attribute bridges=1. It should be noted that the dataset contains major bridges and all other smaller constructions that have been classified as bridges in Open Street Map. The coverage for the dataset is whole Baltic.
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.
The shipping density map highlights the intensity of all IMO registered ships operating in the Baltic Sea. It is based on the HELCOM AIS (Automatic Identification System) data. The HELCOM AIS dataset contains all the AIS signals received by the Baltic Sea States since 2005. The data was pre-processed by the HELCOM Secretariat (under the Baltic SCOPE project) in order to have a dataset that could be used to generate products such as density maps and traffic statistics.
This dataset contains the commercial Ports of Baltic Sea. The dataset was created in 2016 to be used in HELCOM Assessments. Attribute specification and units port: Name of the port Country: Name of the country LOCodes: the United Nations Code for Trade and Transport Locations
This dataset contains polyline data of bridges and other constructions downloaded from OpenStreetMap. Attributes specification and units osm_id: OpenStreetMap ID name: Name of the construction, if available man_made: description of the construction other tags: tags related to the construction
The dataset contains points and polygons data of the Ports and ferry terminals in the Baltic Sea downloaded from, respectively, EMODnet and OSM, and HELCOM AIS. Attributes specification and units (points) ID: Code of the port composed of International Country Code (ISO 3166-1-Alpha-2 code elements) and 3 code elements of the name of the port or OpenStreetMap ID Country: the country where the port is located name: Name of the port, if available class: ferry terminal or harbour Attributes specification and units (polygons) LOCodes: Code of the port composed of International Country Code (ISO 3166-1-Alpha-2 code elements) and 3 code elements of the name of the port or OpenStreetMap ID Country: the country where the port is located port: Name of the port Links: Hyperlink to web pages, if available
The shipping density map highlights the intensity of all IMO registered ships operating in the Baltic Sea for the period 2016-2020. It was extracted from the HELCOM AIS (Automatic Identification System) dataset (https://metadata.helcom.fi/geonetwork/srv/eng/catalog.search#/metadata/2558244b-0cea-46e9-8053-af6ef5d01853).
