Mapping Human Activities in the Oceans
11 January 2024
A new publication in Nature reveals that human activity in the world’s oceans is increasing at an exponential rate, with an estimated economic impact of $1.5 trillion, which is expected to double by 2030.
This highlights the need for better monitoring of human activities in the oceans, which are increasingly becoming a place for exploitation.
The study uses geospatial technologies to better map these activities and determine their potential impact.
