The Global Maritime Boundaries Database (GMBD) CD-ROMEntry ID: MRJBoundary_CD
Abstract: The Global Maritime Boundaries Database (GMBD) CD-ROM brings together the
claims, limits and boundaries of the world with detailed attribution and
documentation so they can be queried and viewed using GIS software. Included in
the GMBD are: territorial seas; contiguous, joint development, fishing, and
economic zones; potential claim median line ... solutions, disputed areas, boundary
status; and much more. It will be your standard reference for quick access to
vital, specific boundary information.
General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems had created an interactive CD-ROM
that makes these global maritime boundaries data commercially available.
General Dynamics started building and maintaining a global environmental GIS in
the 1980s to address the research needs of its clients.
Until now, graphical portrayal of the claims or agreed boundaries has not been
readily available to those involved in marine activities. Third party
publishers of claims and boundaries data do not include graphics, portray only
one boundary per graphic, or limit their graphics to only the agreed
The database is key reference tool for manual or automated analyses and can be
applied to a vast array of specialty areas including defense, hydrographic
surveying, offshore oil and gas exploration, fisheries, telecommunications,
marine minerals/mining, defense, salvage, shipping, construction, pollution,
marine scientific research, marine archaeology, recreation, ocean law,
academia, and journalism.
