Extending the outer limits of the continental shelf

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

The Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland - GEUS - carries out activities to exploit and protect geological resources in Denmark and Greenland. Primary activities are mapping, compilation and storage of data, research, monitoring and consultancy within water, energy, minerals and climate and environment. 

GEUS was assigned to identify and document the outer limits of the Continental Shelf in relation to 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea.  They found Geocap the best suited platform to demonstrate and document the complex set of rules provided in article 76 of the Convention. 

The software ability to integrate a suite of data types and processes was unique and it was a straightforward decision to use Geocap Shelf in the Continental Shelf Project.​ In particular the 3D visualization of multibeam bathymetry together with seismic data was a powerful tool in the conducted geomorphological analysis.
