+ Show information

Basic project information


The project will produce the Finnish Marine portal (, a national service linking information and data from various  Finnish marine data providers. The aim is to enhance the practical utility of marine data as well as the visibility of Finnish maritime know-how. The emphasis will be on clear and practical presentations developed with visual clarity, ease of access, logical search paths, seamless user interfaces, and user friendly downloading processes. The Portal will be produced first in Finnish, later on also in Swedish and in English. The project is funded by the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund.

The Portal is developed in close cooperation with the different agencies and user groups: the project started with a mapping of the needs of potential users. The Portal will provide real-time marine data, status reports, maps, info-graphics, materials, including teaching materials, all serving decision-makers, public authorities, businesses, researchers, journalists, teachers and students.
