The data we hold is gathered from a range of expert providers by working closely with government organisations, hydrographic offices and other partners across the world. This data has the potential to be used for a wide range of applications – from supporting safe navigation to wider decision-making across the blue economy. 

Access marine geospatial data from seabed to surface

Through the ADMIRALTY Marine Data Portal, users can access extensive data within the UK’s Exclusive Economic Zone, including:

  • Offshore infrastructure
  • Vertical Offshore Reference Frame (VORF)
  • Wrecks and obstructions
  • Seabed composition
  • HMNAO astronomical and calendar information

As well as supporting the evolving needs of mariners and existing users of our ADMIRALTY products and services, these data sets can also support decision-making in new markets across the blue economy.
