All the tools of the project

https://saspas.eu/

Within the project a GIS Digital information Platform was developed. It includes a large-scale GIS for the Adriatic See, presenting a series of map-themes available for managers (public, agencies, parks, various authorities...) to make them able to implement safeguard measures and promote a sustainable use of the coast. It includes a document repository too, to make available the documents and scientific sources used within the project to develop the integrated management system for the protection of marine phanerogams.
