Welcome to CefMAT
This suite of data assessment tools builds on the European Marine Ecosystem Observatory (EMECO), extending its initial “proof of concept” remit from Eutrophication (e.g. OSPAR Assessments) to delivery of its driving remit, national and international assessments under the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD) and the Oslo and Paris Convention for the protection and conservation of the North-East Atlantic (OSPAR). It enables rapid integration and visualisation of multi-platform, multi-parameter and multi-national data, at anational and regional scale which users can query and view as integrated data assessment outputs, graphs, time-series plots, bespoke assessment maps, and generate reporting material. It delivers transparent, auditable, cost-effective policy-relevant information, e.g. suitable for assessing good environmental status.
About the data tool
These Datatools provide a suite of web-based services to its users. Different users will have access to different functionality depending on the requirements and permissions
There are three types of users:
Public Users have access to all data and functionality that is public, but do not have access to any other data or functionality in the Datatool.
Registered Users have access to additional functionality e.g. the ability to draw and save their own set of polygons to query the data within. In addition, registered users may be granted permission to access a range of other functionality, including permission to upload data into the EMECO Datatools and generate environmental assessments.
Admin Users can create new and delete old users, define the type of user, view registered users data, make registered users data public on request, create and edit registered and public data menus. Admin users have access to all data in the tool.
To become a registered user, you will require a username and password from an administrator. Contact the Datatools Team for further information.
