Dataset Reference Date 2015
Lineage Falkland Islands Yacht Club and other Falklands-based sailors were asked to identify the areas more favoured for pleasure boating and those that were never or seldom used. The classification covers the area to 1km offshore. Further offshore, there are no clear areas used or favoured. A paper map was provided with a colour code for the different coastal areas. This map was digitised and polygons created for each coastal zone with classification as 'frequent', 'occasional' and 'never' . Sally Poncet and Ken Passfield produced the original paper map during a Yacht Club meeting; Theis Matzen, Jerome and Dion Poncet helped to finalise the map.
