On Tuesday 22nd project officer Manuel Frias gave a presentation in Szczecin (Poland) where he was invited to participate in a seminar called “Spatial planning in maritime and coastal areas”. The session he attended was about scientific data in maritime areas. After the round of presentation a lively panel discussion with many questions started. Among other topics the discussion was about:

  • Databases: where to find data, problems with non-public data, how to make them more accessible?
  • Metadata: need of a database for metadata?
  • Importance of visualization of data (“the power of maps” as prof. Jacek Zaucha pointed out): it is good to collect data but maybe more important it is to make that data understandable.
  • What is it needed to improve data collection.

In general some of the ideas repeated more often were the need of cross-border cooperation – there are many MSP projects but the communication between countries is poor or non-existing. Secondly, the need of  an ecosystem approach was mentioned by several presenters. And finally the need of good quality, accessible and reliable data.

We thank the organizers for such a good seminar! And thanks for the nice pictures!
