Law of the sea

Maritime boundaries form the outermost limits for most States and is a matter of national priority. Well-defined maritime boundaries reduces ambiguity in the spatial definition of a State’s maritime zones and increases the potential for international harmony, economic activity, resource managment and environmental protection.

Geocap offers a complete set of software solutions for working with Maritime Limits and Boundaries, includning extended continental shelf delineation. We have over 15 years of experience with law of the sea related work with clients in more than 50 States around the world.

Martitime Limits and Boundaries Calculation

Geocap provides a set of geodetic tools for calculating maritime limit lines and maritime boundary lines directly in ArcGIS. The solution has been developed in collaboration with Geoscience Australia and the Canadian Hydrographic Service.

With this extension users can capture, configure, store and disseminate their data using the industry leading GIS platform. This is a major advantage to usability as the data stream is harmonized, removing several transformation and data conversion steps compared to other solutions.

Automating maritime boundary calculations

The accurate computation of maritime boundaries is a matter of national priority.

Extended Continental Shelf Delination

The Extended Continental Shelf (ECS) is the portion of the continental shelf which naturally extends beyond 200 nautical miles. To recieve sovereign rights over the energy, mineral and living resources on and under the seabed in this area, States are required to make a submission to the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf (CLCS). This requires knowledge of the geophysical characteristics of the seabed and subsoil.

Geocap Shelf is the world leading software for extended continental shelf delineation in accordance with UNCLOS, Article 76. It offers a complete solution with interpretation tools, analyzes, algorithms and documentation in one single software. More than 70% of all sumbissions made to the CLCS have used Geocap Shelf.

Extending the outer limits of the continental shelf

GEUS uses Geocap in their work to claim five areas off the Faroe Islands and Greenland.
