Offshore Spatial Information -- Maritime Spatial Planning in Poland


  • Jacek Zaucha


Zaucha J. Offshore spatial information -- maritime spatial planning in Poland, Regional Studies . The paper examines the demand, availability and usage of spatial information in the process of maritime spatial planning. It is based the on author's own experience of preparing such plans in Poland. The paper analyses the demand for information in relation to planning cycles tested under different pilot projects. Several information gaps are defined. The behaviour and consciousness of maritime stakeholders is also examined to provide a better insight into the nature and dynamics of the gaps detected. The paper ends with some recommendations for the development of an information system in support of maritime spatial planning. Zaucha J. 空间信息离岸化:以波兰海洋空间规划为例, 区域研究 。本文考察了在海洋空间规划过程中,空间信息的需求、可得性和使用情况。分析基于作者在准备对波兰进行海洋空间规划时积累的自身经验。本文通过检验不同的试点项目,分析了信息需求与规划过程之间的关系,阐释了几类信息鸿沟。为了更好的审视信息鸿沟的本质和动态演化,研究还考察了不同海洋利益主体的行为和意识。最后,本文对海洋空间规划信息支持系统的建设提出了一些建议。 信息鸿沟 海洋空间规划 Zaucha J. L'information spatiale off-shore -- étude de cas de la planification spatiale maritime en Pologne, Regional Studies . Cet article cherche à examiner la demande, la disponibilité et l'emploi de l'information spatiale dans le processus de planification spatiale maritime. Il est fondé sur la leçon qu'a tiré l'auteur lui-même de la péparation de tels plans en Pologne. L'article analyse la demande de l'information en fonction des cycles de planification testés à partir des projets pilotes différents. On définit plusieurs lacunes en matière d'information. On examine aussi le comportement et la conscience des acteurs du secteur maritime afin de mieux comprendre la nature et la dynamique des lacunes constatées. Pour conclure, l'article fait des recommandations quant à la création d'un système d'information nécessaire à la planification spatiale maritime. Lacunes en matière d'information Planification spatiale maritime Zaucha J. Räumliche Informationen im Meer -- der Fall der maritimen Raumplanung in Polen, Regional Studies . In diesem Beitrag wird die Nachfrage, Verfügbarkeit und Nutzung von räumlichen Informationen im Prozess der maritimen Raumplanung untersucht. Grundlage für den Beitrag sind die eigenen Erfahrungen des Autors mit der Ausarbeitung solcher Pläne in Polen. Analysiert wird die Nachfrage nach Informationen im Zusammenhang mit den Planungszyklen, die im Rahmen verschiedener Pilotprojekte getestet werden. Es werden verschiedene Informationslücken definiert. Ebenso werden das Verhalten und Bewusstsein der Beteiligten im maritimen Bereich untersucht, um einen besseren Einblick in die Beschaffenheit und Dynamik der erkannten Lücken zu bieten. Der Beitrag endet mit Empfehlungen für die Entwicklung eines Informationssystems zur Unterstützung der maritimen Raumplanung. Informationslücken Maritime Raumplanung Zaucha J. Información espacial en alta mar -- el caso de la planificación espacial marítima en Polonia, Regional Studies . En este artículo examino la demanda, la disponibilidad y el uso de información espacial en el proceso de la planificación espacial marítima, basándome en mi propia experiencia con la preparación de tales planes en Polonia. Analizo la demanda de información con relación a los ciclos de planificación comprobados bajo diferentes proyectos piloto, y defino varias lagunas de información. También estudio el comportamiento y el conocimiento de los interesados del sector marítimo para ofrecer una perspectiva mejor sobre la naturaleza y las dinámicas de las lagunas detectadas. Termino este artículo con algunas recomendaciones para el desarrollo de un sistema de información que respalde la planificación espacial marítima.
