The dataset on maritime transport includes goods, passengers and vessels traffic data in the EU main ports and was created in 2014 by Eurofish and Cogea for the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet). It is the result of the harmonization and aggregation on annual basis of the quarterly EUROSTAT Maritime transport data, provided by port in the EU Member States, Montenegro, Norway, Turkey and the UK. 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). EUROSTAT data have been related to the 'Ports 2013' GISCO's points georeferenced dataset. Goods traffic data are reported in thousand tonnes by type of cargo and direction. Passengers traffic data are reported in thousand passengers (excluding cruise passengers) by direction and traffic type. Vessels traffic data are reported in unit and gross tonnage (thousand) of vessels by vessel size class and vessel type. Where available, the latest update includes data from 1997 up to 2021.
The geodatabase on Main Ports - Waste at ports was created in 2018 by CETMAR using the Ports 2013 data available in Eurostat web page (http://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/web/main/home). It is the result of the aggregation and harmonization of datasets provided by several sources from all across the EU and is available for viewing and download on EMODnet - Human Activities web portal (https://emodnet.ec.europa.eu/en/human-activities). Following the MARPOL Convention waste at ports have been reported by Ports indistincly in cubic meters(m3)and/or in tonnes and classified as oily waste (Annex I), garbage (Annex V), sewage (Annex IV), Harbor Waste (garbage) and Total Amount*. These datasets are updated on an annual basis and includes annual data from 2000 to 2018 (where available) in the following countries: Estonia, Finland, France, Latvia, Portugal, Italy, Greece, Romania, Sweden, Croatia, Malta, Netherlands and Spain.*Total Amounts only report the sum of available values for each of the given units (m3 or tonnes).
