Seasonal plots of the ship density in the PFOW Strategic Area. Based on a grid of cells 1nm x1nm covering the Strategic Area. The number of AIS tracks crossing each cell has been counted and the grid thematically mapped from lowest density to highest density, where each track corresponds to one vessel movement, based on the relative traffic density levels.

This dataset was produced by Anatec.The data are for viewing only and should not be reproduced in any form, e.g. screenshots taken and used in other reports.
