The maritime borders dataset contains the seaward boundaries of the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), the territorial sea and the baselines. They are condensed coordinates of the maritime border maps 2920 (North Sea) and 2921 (Baltic Sea). They are coordinates compressed (interpolated) to geodetic lines. The distance of the nodes on the geodetic connecting lines of the defined boundary points is less than or equal to 100 m. The maritime borders of Germany were proclaimed in the today no more usual coordinate system "European date 1950 (ED50)". This definition is based in particular on the announcement of the Federal Government's proclamation of 19 October 1994 on the extension of the German territorial sea (BGBl. I p. 3428) and the Federal Republic of Germany's proclamation of 25 November 1994 on the establishment of an exclusive economic zone (BGBl. II p. 3769), which are decisive with regard to the demarcation of the German territorial sea and the German exclusive economic zone. In order to be able to better use these boundaries in today's GIS systems and to avoid conversion errors, the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency has derived the present usage coordinates in WGS 84. In this respect, they are not official maritime borders of Germany.
The data set comprises parameters influenced by eutrophication which are recorded at measuring stations of the Federal Maritime Office and Hydrography. Parameters: Chlorophyll a, nutrient concentrations, visibility depth, macrophytes, oxygen content, oxygen saturation index and nitrogen loads from the river basin districts.
Data of the Nautical Hydrographic Information System. This includes the floating and fixed navigation marks, as well as further information on navigation in the sea and land area [of the German area of the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ)].
The service contains the published status of the spatial stipulations of the site development plan as an additional source of information. The planning scale of the plan is 1:400,000. The published documents are authoritative. Further information is available at https://gdiwiki.bsh.de/wiki/index.php/Flächenentwicklungsplan (only German)
The data set contains tidal current data for the North and Western Baltic Sea based on the predictions of the BSH circulation model BSHcmod.
The data set comprises all MSRL-relevant parameters measured by stations of the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH).
