The Tools4MSP are a set of web and open source tools developed to support the implementation of Maritime Spatial Planning (MSP), with a specific focus on the analysis of conflicts between marine uses and the analysis of cumulative impacts (CI) of human activities on marine environments.
For a short tutorial on how to use the Tools4MSP, click here.
The COEXIST – sea uses conflict analysis tool was developed during ADRIPLAN project. The tool is based on a methodology developed for the FP7 COEXIST Project and has the aim to (1) support MSP process through reallocation of maritime uses, (2) creation of collaborative conflict scores analysis; (3) iteration of the analysis over different time periods trough integration of new conflict scores and geospatial datasets on sea uses, (4) sea use scenario analysis and (5) overlay analysis.

The Cumulative Impact assessment tool aims to support the MSP process under an Ecosystem-Based Approach (EBA) by assessing the potential cumulative impacts of maritime activities on the marine environment. The CI assessment tool was developed during the ADRIPLAN project (http://adriplan.eu). It is the core tool of the Tools4MSP, an open source geopython library. The tool was tested for the Adriatic-Ionian sub-basin, but can be deployed to any research area around the globe.
