User Guidance Document

This is a short explanation of how to make optimal use of the Project database, to ensure that only those results relevant to your specific search command will appear. The more search categories are specified, the more selective the displayed results will be. If you choose not to specify an option in a search category, no distinction will be made in the search results and all entries that have been assigned all of the options in that search category will be shown. It is also possible to enter a keyword or the name of a project in the free text search box. Do you feel that there is something missing, or that any of the information is incorrect or incomplete? Please contact us via (info[at]maritime-spatial-planning[dot]ec[dot]europa[dot]eu) or fill in the Contact Form.
