Solomon Islands is composed of almost 1000 islands and has the second longest coastline and the second largest Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) in the Pacific. These physical characteristics and the unique society and culture of the population are the basis of the fundamental relationship that Solomon Islanders have with the ocean. The Marine Atlas for the Solomon Islands compiles over a hundred datasets from countless data providers and for the first time makes marine and coastal information accessible and usable as data layers and as raw data.
The GEOSS Portal is an online map-based user interface which allows users to discover and access Earth observation data and resources from different providers from all over the world.
The portal is implemented and operated by the European Space Agency and provides a single internet discovery and access point to the ever-growing quantities of heterogeneous collections of Earth observations from satellites, airplanes, drones and in-situ sensors at global, regional and local scales through the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS).
The PacificMap is a platform developed by CSIRO Data61 and the Pacific Data Hub (PDH) in collaboration with the Pacific Community Secretariat (SPC), as part of the Asia - Pacific for Development Initiative (D4D). The PacificMap is a platform for map-based access to spatial data from 22 Pacific Island Countries and Territories. It will lower the barrier and enhance access to timely, relevant and useful data for government and non-government organisations, businesses and communities throughout the Pacific.
The UN Biodiversity Lab is an online platform that allows policymakers and other partners to access global data layers, upload and manipulate their own datasets, and query multiple datasets to provide key information on the Aichi Biodiversity Targets and nature-based Sustainable Development Goals.
Open dataset of boundaries and regulations that apply to marine protected areas (MPAs) and fishery management areas in U.S. and international marine waters.
An open access geospatial data repository for the Pacific Region providing premier geophysical, geodetic, and marine spatial data sets. Developed through collaboration between the GeoScience, Energy and Maritime Division of the Pacific Community (SPC), University of Sydney, Geoscience Australia (GA), and GRID-Arendal.
Physical geography, biological, bathymetry, geomorphology, oceanography, uses, risks spatial data for Solomon Islands marine environment.
Map developed by MACBIO for the bioregions workshop (Feb 2018). The Global Human Impact of Marine Ecosystems Project distributed national total catch values form FAO data into 1 km^2 cells using a spatial model to show intensity of artisanal fishing.
Map developed by MACBIO for the bioregions workshop 2018. Chlorophyl-a concentration is an important proxy which is routinely measured and is considered a "core" parameter of global physical-biological oceanic models.
This map was developed by MACBIO as resource for the bioregions workshop 2017 and shows ocean surface currents based on data from NOAA Ocean Surface Current Analysis (http://www.oscar,noaa.gov/).
The map shows paths and intensities of tropical cyclones in Solomon Islands EEZ from 1980 to 2015.
The map shows the diffuse attenuation coefficient per metre of depth (2002-present). This is an indicator of turbidity in the water column. The map was developed by MACBIO as resource for the bioregions workshop in Feb 2018.
A map that shows domestic shipping routes within Solomon Islands EEZ.
A map of Solomon Islands EEZ showing location and magnitude of historic earthquakes from 1900 to 2008. The map was created as resource for the MACBIO bioregions workshop in Feb 2018.
A map showing the frontal index in Solomon Islands EEZ. The map was created by MACBIO as resource for the bioregions workshop in Feb 2018. Data is based on CSIRO Atlas of regional seas (CARS).
A front is a boundary between two distinct water masses that move in different directions.
This map was created by MACBIO as resource for the bioregions workshop in Feb 2018. The map represents the number of times a front has been detected in Sea Surface Temperature. Data is based on Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS).
Maps showing geomorphic features. The maps were developed by MACBIO as resources for the bioregions workshops in Feb 2018.
Several maps showing a number of different chemical properties of the ocean, like nitrate concentration, oxygen concentration, ph, phosphate concentration, inorganic carbon concentration, Particulate organic carbon concentration, silicate concentration, surface temperature, radiation availability, mixed layer depth, phytoplankton concentration, available radiation and productivitiy.
These maps were developed by MACBIO as resource for the bioregions workshop in Feb 2018.
Map of marine pollution incidents by fisheries observer. Resolution 1 degree grid. Resource Map developed by MACBIO for bioregions workshop in Feb 2018.
Map showing reefs at risk in Solomon Islands EEZ. Map developed as resource by MACBIO for the bioregions workshop in Feb 2018.
