Marine Data Exchange Report 2019

Thursday, August 15, 2019

The Marine Data Exchange was created to store, manage and share offshore survey data collected by The Crown Estate's offshore customers. This report, the first of its kind, explores the complete data holiding of the Marine Data Exchange in an interactive way, using ESRI story maps. 

Now holding 167 TB of data from 2, 290  surveys collected by the offshore renewable and marine aggregate sectors, the MDE has enabled The Crown Estate and our customers to share over half of this valuable survey data with others.

Of the 61% of survey data that has been made publicly available through www.marinedataexchange.co.uk, 6, 986 datasets and reports were downloaded from January to June 2019.

With the number of downloads increasing each year, The Crown Estate is exploring how we can continue to improve the discoverability of survey data on the MDE and facilitate the sharing of information effectively and efficiently.
