About the MARNET Atlas
The MARNET Atlas is a new online platform displaying marine socio-economic data for the European Atlantic Area.
The Atlas provides detailed economic information on a range of maritime sectors with the objective of contributing to in-depth economic and social analysis of the Atlantic Area.
The information detailed in the Atlas has been collected by partners from five countries; France, Ireland, Portugal, Spain and the United Kingdom.
There are 15 topics within the Atlas covering 52 economic activities, as well as population and socio-demographic data.
The Atlas covers the five years’ worth of data from 2008 to 2012.
Accessing the Data
The Atlas is useable at the country level and regional level, known as NUTS 0 and NUTS 2.
Population and socio-demographic data is useable at a smaller scale (NUTS 3 and Local Administrative Unit 1).
For more information on NUTS regions please visit the Eurostat Website.
The data included in the MARNET Atlas, as well as additional data at smaller geographic scales is available in spreadsheet form through the member’s area of the MARNET website.

Additional Information and Data Notes
Each NACE code is considered either fully marine or partially marine; where you see a “(P)” this indicates a partially marine NACE code and contains data from other industries.
Data collected for the UK was converted from Great British Pounds to Euros using HM Revenue and Customs Yearly Exchange Rates.
The original data files within the network member’s area contain both Pounds and Euro values.
For Spain, Ireland and the UK gross value added figures are collected as basic prices, for France and Portugal the figures are collected as market prices.
The MARNET Atlas aims to enhance public access to accurate and up to date marine socio-economic data.
