The datasets on subsea telecommunication and power cables (actual routes) in the EU was created in 2014 by Cogea for the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet). It is the result of the aggregation and harmonization of datasets provided by several sources. It is updated every year and is available for viewing and download on EMODnet Human Activities web portal (https://emodnet.ec.europa.eu/en/human-activities). The datasets contain lines representing actual cable routes locations. Compared with the previous version, this version includes an update of the French telecommunication cables, the telecommunication cables that originate from or pass through Spanish (Andalucia) and Dutch waters, and the electric cables that originate from or pass through French, Dutch and Norwegian waters.
