    The dataset on areas for aggregate extraction in the EU was created in 2018 by AZTI for the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet). It is the result of the aggregation and harmonization of datasets provided by several sources from all across the EU. It is available for viewing and download on EMODnet - Human Activities web portal (www.emodnet-humanactivities.eu). The database contains polygons representing areas of seabed licensed for exploration or extraction of aggregates, in the following countries: Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Lithuania, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Sweden, The Netherlands and United Kingdom. Where available, each polygon has the following attributes: Id (Identifier), Area code, Area name, Country, Sea basin, Sea, Starting year (the year when the license starts), End year (the year when the license ends), Site Type (exploration area, extraction area, extraction area (in use)), License status (Active, not active, unknown), Material type (e.g.: sand, gravel, maerl), Notes, Distance to coast (in metres), Link to Web Sources. In the 2021 update, new areas have been included, and the data on the existing polygons have been updated.

    The dataset on aggregate extraction in the EU was created in 2014 by AZTI for the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet). It is the result of the aggregation and harmonization of datasets provided by several sources from all across the EU. It is available for viewing and download on EMODnet - Human Activities web portal (www.emodnet-humanactivities.eu). The database contains points representing aggregate extraction sites, by year (although some data are indicated by a period of years), in the following countries: Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, The Netherlands and United Kingdom. Where available, each point has the following attributes: Id (Identifier), Position Info (e.g.: Estimated, Original, Polygon centroid of dredging area, Estimated polygon centroid of dredging area), Country, Sea basin, Sea, Name of the extraction area, Area of activity (km2), Year (the year when the extraction took place), Permitted Amount (m3) (permitted amount of material to be extracted, in m3), Permitted Amount (t) (permitted amount of material to be extracted, in tonnes), Requested Amount (m3) (requested amount of material to be extracted, in m3), Requested Amount (t) (requested amount of material to be extracted, in tonnes), Extracted Amount (m3) (extracted amount of material, in m3), Extracted Amount (t) (extracted amount of material, in tonnes), Extraction Type (Marine sediment extraction), Purpose (e.g.: Commercial, Others, N/A), End Use (e.g.: Beach nourishment, Construction, Reclamation fill, N/A), Material type (e.g.: sand, gravel, maerl), Notes, Link to Web Sources. In the 2021 update, extraction data until 2020 has been included.
