The Icelandic Continental Shelf Portal
The ICSP is a system for the registration, maintenance and sharing of details on data for which Orkustofnun is responsible relating to Iceland’s continental shelf. It grants access, via the internet, to information about data of many types regarding the continental shelf around Iceland, including licences granted by Orkustofnun, areas under study, the seabed and the findings of expeditions to the Dreki Area and other locations in Iceland’s economic zone. Replacing an earlier version that was in use from 2009-2019, the portal gives easier access to information on areas that have been studied and what data on them is available, how, when and by whom it was gathered and where it can be obtained.
For further information on the ICSP and the data it contains, see here.
© All copying or redistribution of software or data in the form it is presented on the ICSP is prohibited except by permission of its managers and responsible parties. In the case of data owned by bodies or companies other than Orkustofnun, permission must be obtained from the relevant parties.
