Data Requirements

Requirements for delivering data to the MDE


The Marine Data Exchange (MDE) holds survey data collected by The Crown Estate's marine customers, such as offshore wind farm developers. A set of consistent standards and requirements across all of our customers ensure that the MDE is maintained to a high level with enhanced discoverability of data.

We work closely with our customers to ensure that we achieve the right balance between data requirements and standards, and the ease of data delivery. This balance is constantly changing and so we aim to update our data requirements appropriately.

If you are an offshore developer, consultant collecting data on behalf of a developer or simply interested in the data standards that we apply, please get in touch.
