The ADRIPLAN – Project: ADRiatic Ionian maritime spatial PLANning (2013-2015; Budget 1.250.000€) is a project funded by the European Commission – DG MARE under the call (MARE/2012/25) on the theme "Maritime Spatial Planning (MSP) in the Mediterranean sea and/or the Black sea". The focus of the proposal is the Adriatic-Ionian Region, as outlined by the recent EU strategy for the Adriatic and Ionian Region (EUSAIR). The ADRIPLAN project was implemented by 17 Partners from 4 countries of the Adriatic - Ionian Macroregion (Italy, Slovenia, Croatia and Greece): 8 Scientific Partners and 9 Institutional Partners (inner circle), including 17 Observers from EU and non-EU states are also contributing to the project.
The aim of the project is to improve knowledge and develop practical experience in the implementation of Maritime Spatial Planning. The study area is the Adriatic-Ionian Macroregion considered as a whole and a zoom on two focus areas: the Northern Adriatic Sea and the Southern Adriatic- Northern Ionian Sea. The general framework is the Integrated Maritime Policy, based on the eco-systemic approach and on the implementation of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (2008/56/EC).

The ADRIPLAN Data Portal is an integrated platform which aims to support the MSP process in the Adriatic-Ionian region. The portal is developed on GeoNode, an open source Geospatial Content Management System that allows users to share geospatial datasets and maps. The portal includes about 150 layers published by governmental and research organizations, public data providers, european and international projects and by other users. The following layer categories can be accessed through the portal:

Tools4MSP are based on a geopython library designed for spatial analysis of interactions between different sea uses, pressures and potential cumulative impact of marine and coastal activities on the marine environment. The tool can be deployed to any research area around the globe and is extendable for scenario analysis, sea use based analysis (e.g. maritime traffic, energy, aquaculture, etc.), socio-economic assessments and application in participatory planning processes. The recently implemented GeoNode-Tools4MSP plugin allows users to generate their impact scenarios by selecting analysis area, data layers involved (human activities and environmental components) and grid cell analysis Menegon et al., 2016.
Currently Tools4MSP consists of two tools, which are now available as case studies:

After the conclusion of the ADRIPLAN Project, the Tools4MSP - Team has intensively worked on the improvement of the portal, in
terms of datasets availability and metadata consistency. This work is still in progress.
Currently we would like to present you our latest data updates on Environmental protection>.
