Additional information

These conventions list the coordinates of points which are the vertices of segments which, in turn, define the maritime boundaries. This layer therefore features the following elements: - The textual content of international conventions establishing maritime boundaries in Europe. Maritime boundaries featured in this layer include territorial waters, bi- or multi-lateral boundaries (e.g. in the North Sea) as well as contiguous and exclusive economic zones. Some fishing areas are also defined. - The coordinates of points listed in these conventions are vertices of maritime boundaries - The maritime boundaries themselves, defined as the segments which links the different points listed in the international conventions.
This layer covers the coast and surrounding seas of EU-25 as well as the sea around Iceland and Greenland. Restrictions are those cases where no regulatory text exists within the UNCLOS till now.
