Emodnet Human Activities - Major ports


Resource Identification Information

Abstract
              The geodatabase on maritime transport in EU main ports includes goods, passengers and vessels traffic in the EU and was created in 2014 by Eurofish and Cogea for the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet). It is the result of the aggregation and harmonization of datasets provided to EUROSTAT by ports in EU Member States and Norway. EUROSTAT data have been related to GISCO's georeferenced ports dataset. These datasets are updated on an annual basis. The latest update includes data up to 2017 (where available). Goods and Passengers data are available from 2001 while vessel is maintained from 2006 onwards. Goods traffic data are reported in thousand tonnes by type of cargo and direction. Passengers traffic data are reported in thousand passengers (excluding cruise passengers) by direction and traffic type. Vessels traffic data are reported in unit and gross tonnage (thousand) of vessels by vessel size class and vessel type. Original data is reported quarterly by EUROSTAT, but has been aggregated on an annual basis to produce this dataset.
