This layer shows old / residual cable infrastructure “now out of use“ where possible telecommunications or power cable remnants may remain on the seabed. It is derived from charted data, Ocean Wise and UKHO s57 data, to identify cables routes where there may be some remnant on the seabed, cross-checked with the Subsea Cables UK data set managed by the Sea Fish Industry Authority (KIS – ORCA data set) to ensure that current (in use) cables are excluded.
