An interactive mapping website has just been launched showing the cumulative impact of human activities on marine ecosystems around the world.
With this website you can:
*view maps of cumulative human impacts, and each of the individual component datasets that were used to calculate cumulative impact.
*zoom in and out to any scale and location of interest, or type in a specific lat/long and zoom to that location
*produce a summary report of the results for any location that includes explanations for why the location has the impact scores that it does
*download data for any given location
