The Working Group on Marine Habitat Mapping (WGMHM) has held three annual meetings in 2015–2017.The 2017 meeting was held at ICES HQ, Copenhagen, Denmark, 30 May to 1 June. Ten members attended the meeting from six countries. The first day of the meeting dealt with ToR A (International Mapping Programmes) and ToR B (National Mapping Pro-grammes). Based on recommendations from the 2015 and 2016 meetings, the reporting of national mapping progress is now undertaken using a templated form. The objective for this approach is to (i) standardise the reporting of mapping progress; (ii) allow country representatives not attending the meeting to still contribute to the working group; and (iii) encourage the submission of information to the GeoNetwork.
