Abstract Observations of live baleen whales from different datasets collected in France and the United Kingdom were compiled to generate Maxent presence-only habitat suitability models in the CHARM3 study area. These include 3 species of baleen whales. The data span from 2002 - 2011 and come from both dedicated and opportunistic surveys from land, sea, or air.
