The present section makes available the information reported by Member States to the European Commission under the Marine Strategy Framework Directive. It contains four types of tools:

  • GES assessment visualisation tools:  displaying the last assessments reported by Member States on the Good Environmental Status of their waters, including a story map that aggregates those at the regional level

  • MSFD datasets catalogue: containing the metadata information from the datasets used in the last Good Environmental Status assessments harvested from external catalogues through URLs reported by the Member States

  • MSFD reporting data explorer: making accessible and downloadable the data reported by the countries under the different reporting exercises

  • MSFD spatial reference datasets: making available  the spatial datasets  where the MSFD is implemented: the marine  regions and subregions, including the surrounding seas of Europe, the countries' marine waters and the Marine Reporting Units used within the first and second reporting cycles
