Abstract: Marine Spatial Data Infrastructure (MSDI) is the component of National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI). It encompasses marine and coastal geographic and business information. An MSDI would include information on marine boundaries and limits, conservation and preservation areas, marine habitats, oceanography, bathymetry, hydrography, geology, marine infrastructure, wrecks, offshore installations, pipelines, and cables. For efficient use of Marine Spatial Data it is necessary to ensure a valid and accessible distribution. Geoportal is specialized web portal for sharing geospatial information on different levels using Internet. Geoportals are key part of SDI. In this paper, several European countries Geoportals will be reviewed (for example Norwegian, Irish or German) to determine their functionality, capabilities and the scope to which they support the sharing and reuse of Marine Spatial Data.
