Our service makes use of use of geospatial Open Data (Copernicus Marine Monitoring Service) to generate water quality indicators, which contribute to the evaluation of environmental status of European seas in the light of Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD). The service provides users with a web-based tool, able to display scalar and vector variables on different types of maps. Visualisation can be tailored to specific needs. Moreover, the service allows the visualisation of time series of selected variables, in order to facilitate the analysis of long-term trends in marine environment.
