Marine activities around Turks and Caicos identified by stakeholders

The dataset is a point shapefile layer presenting rough locations of marine activities identified by stakeholders during series of meetings in January and February 2020. The meetings were part of the MSP Project and aimed in bringing all islands' stakeholders to the process of developing marine spatial planning tools.

Lineage Marine activities were identified by stakeholders using aerial image based maps of the area. On every workshop two groups were created and every group had two maps: one small covering the island on wich the workshop took place, and one large covering all the Turks and Caicos Islands. The stakeholders created a list of marine activities and coded them with 2-3 letter codes. The marine activities were marked by sticking a yellow label on the map and writing a code on it to describe what kind of marine activities are present in a selected area. The maps were later on georeferenced and the information from labels was entered to the shapefile database. The points were placed in the center of every label. Marine activtites in the dataset are divided to type, place of the workshop and type of the map (large or small).
