Protected broad-scale habitats in offshore MPAs - WMS layers 2019
These Web Map Service layers show point, line and polygon data for protected broad-scale habitat (BSH) features in offshore Marine Conservation Zones in UK waters. BSHs are groups of habitats with shared ecological requirements which capture the coarse biological and physical diversity of the seabed.
The WMS layers include the following protected BSH features: High energy circalittoral rock Moderate energy circalittoral rock Subtidal coarse sediment Subtidal sand Subtidal mud Subtidal mixed sediment Subtidal coarse sediment/subtidal mixed sediments mosaic Deep-sea bed
These layers are available to view on the JNCC MPA mapper and can also be accessed via our WMS: https://ows.jncc.gov.uk/mpa_mapper/wms?
