Service

The map service features wide variety of land forms and landscapes on the sea floor. Marine landscape is defined as a larger geographical area with visually uniform character. The interpretation is based on low-resolution depth data and parameters that can be extracted directly from these. The classification performed here is based on Naturtyper i Norge (NiN).
