Does anyone have access to a shapefile containing British shipping forecast boundaries? I can see a shapefile on the ESRI website but I cannot download it and have not been able to contact the owner of the data.

1 Answer 1


I used to have a shapefile but I can't find it any longer - I created it by hand using the coordinates given at http://www.users.zetnet.co.uk/tempusfugit/marine/area_coord.htm and a UK coastal outline.

  • Thanks Ian, this is perfect! Much appreciated. If I manage to create the shapefile myself I'll post it here. Thanks again. Jul 27, 2022 at 11:00
