Mapping and evaluating marine cultural landscapes allows scientists and researchers to gain new understanding of the roles of maritime activities within specific societies, to discover patterns of maritime-based interactions between cultures, and to develop a better long term understanding of human impacts on specific maritime ecosystems. It also allows a long term analysis of the human aspects of environmental change, and a clearer identification of important cultural variables such as trade patterns, availability of technologies, and impacts of shore-centered activities (farming, industrialization, urbanization) on the seas and oceans.
