It is designed for policy-makers who need to become familiar with ocean issues and for scientists, students and resource managers who need access to databases and approaches to sustainability. The UN Atlas can also provide the ocean industry and stakeholders with pertinent information on ocean matters. Material contained in the UN Atlas is copyrighted but can be freely used for any personal and non-commercial purpose provided that the UN Atlas of the Oceans is cited. The Atlas includes four main entry points to access information: 1. About the oceans - from history, biology, maps and statistics to research, climatology and ecology 2. Uses of the oceans - from fishing, shipping and mining to tourism, dumping and marine biotechnology 3. Issues - from food security and climate change to governance and human health 4. geography - information categorized by geographical area
