EMODnet Human Activities, Cables, Actual Routes


Resource Identification Information

Abstract
              The datasets on submarine telecommunication cables (actual routes) were collected by Cogea starting from the 2014 for the European Marine Observation and Data Network. The underlying data are collated from a variety of sources: SIGCables (managed by Orange), the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH Contis), Greg's Cable Map (via Kis-Orca), and the International Ocean Institute-Malta Operational Centre (University Of Malta/Physical Oceanography Unit, dataset originator: Transport Malta-Maritime Division, ex. Malta Maritime Authority). The datasets contain lines representing actual cable routes locations. Compared with the previous version, this version includes the location of submarine cables that originate from or pass through Maltese Waters.

                    Validation and quality assurance remain up to the primary sources. Cogea simply retrieved the information available online, except for Maltese cables that have been edited ina shapefile using tabular data of coordinates submitted via EMODnet Data Ingestion portal by the International Ocean Institute-Malta Operational Centre (University Of Malta)/Physical Oceanography Unit.
