Ireland's Marine Atlas viewer is funded by the Department of Environment, Community and Local Government and operated by the Marine Institute. The atlas has been developed as part of Ireland's reporting for the Marine Strategy Framework Directive on the condition of the ocean. The Atlas include marine data such as Administrative boundaries, Protected sites, Oil and Gas, Ocean features, Fisheries and Aquaculture, Marine Monitoring, Seabed habitats, Tourism and leisure, Transport, Infrastructure, Discharge point sources, IMO protected areas and Current/Historical dump sites.
Latest shellfish safety data for harvesting and production maps are based on defined production areas and results analysed by the Marine Institute. The HABs report system is used to monitor the status of shellfish and finfish harvesting in terms of food safety regulations and the monitoring of naturally occurring "red tides" known as harmful algal blooms.
The seabed viewer is an interactive map that provides view and download access to seabed survey related data products. The INFOMAR seabed mapping project includes data collection such as bathymetry, backscatter, grab samples, shaded relief, sound velocity profile, sediment samples and seabed habitat classification.
