IHO S-121 Maritime Boundaries and Limits Data Specification funded by Forum Fisheries Agency.

  1. Short Name Pacific Maritime Boundaries Data Exposure
  2. Title IHO S-121 Maritime Boundaries and Limits Data Specification funded by Forum Fisheries Agency.
  3. Description A 2016 Service Level Agreement (SLA) with Pacific Islands Forum Fisheries Agency (FFA) underlined the need for the maritime zones lines in the Forum Fisheries Agency (FFA) Vessel Monitoring System (VMS) to be updated with publicly available and legislated boundaries for the purpose of fisheries monitoring, control, surveillance and enforcement and management. The IHO S-121 maritime limits and boundaries product specification is designed to provide a suitable format for the exchange of digital vector data pertaining to maritime boundaries. The specification is customised to ensure the unique features and attributes of maritime boundary information can be exchanged between States. The specification is also intended to be suitable for lodging digital maritime boundary information with the United Nations for purposes related to UNCLOS. The specification addresses a need for a non-proprietary format that is both open standard and sufficiently flexible to meet the needs of States.
