    This deliverable gives an overview of the maps of the Belgian Continental Shelf that were created as part of the ecosystem services methodology development. The maps can be used as input for quantifying ecosystem services. They represent biotic or abiotic variables, as well as variables related to socio-economic demand (e.g. navigation routes). Due to constraints on data availability (no data exists or data exists but was not available to us), it was not possible to provide maps for all ecosystem services. However, this does not impact on the functioning of the SUMES ES-model as the methods for these ES are also not spatially explicit and they do not require maps. For each map, a short abstract is provided. Their usage in the quantification of the ecosystem services is explained in detail in Deliverable 3.3 (Integrated ecosystem services model). Table below provides an overview of the maps. All of the maps are collected in the SUMES folder on the Marine Data Archive, hosted by VLIZ.
