The EMODnet Bathymetry portal, all metadata and data products (digital bathymetry) services are public domain. However, a User Registration is required for submitting requests for background data sets (bathymetric survey data) and for downloading these data sets from the data providers which is regulated via the SeaDataNet CDI Data Discovery and Access service. The user registration is required to ensure that information about the processing of the data requests and the data sets itself can be sent to the right users, who can follow the processing online through their account. Moreover, it gives data providers insight in its users and their data requirements.
For registration, use is made of the Marine-Id services. You will be asked to register with Marine-Id in order to get a personal login name and password. When submitting data requests, users will be asked to agree with the SeaDataNet Data Policy which rules all data deliveries.
