Coastal Explorer Interactive

Dorset’s Coastal Explorer Interactive will be a map-based tool which will enable the local population and visitors to plan coastal activities via the Internet and ten new touch-screen Coastal Explorer Access Points. The website will highlight features such as slipways, marinas, coastal walks, boating areas, wildlife watching sites and beaches as well as ‘Codes of Practice’ for safe and sustainable recreational use on the coast. It will also provide ‘real-time’ information on meteorological and oceanographic conditions.

It is hoped that the information provided will help to develop a long-term commitment to the principles of ICZM by establishing a sense of stewardship for the coast amongst the community. The development of Coastal Explorer Interactive will also benefit local maritime sector businesses, and the wider community, providing tangible benefits to the local economy and encouraging sustainable tourism.
