Here is something a little interesting. How can GIS be used in the marine environment? Late last year, we heard about Lydia, the great white, spending time off our east coast and even taking some time to visit Newfoundland. (see earlier post for the link).
We're well aware of the diversity of uses for GIS, how are others using the technology? Well, the New England Aquarium in Boston is using Marine GIS
for tracking right whales
, evaluating aquaculture sites, and even a children's summer camp (marine science 101
While I'm thinking of students, what I immediately think of is the wonderful Marine GIS program
. I certainly can't forget the Bedford Institute of Oceanography, affectionately known as BIO. They've been using GIS since before my career
, across several disciplines, checkout their spotlight on Science
Let's not forget our friends with The Atlantic Coastal Zone Information Steering Committee, known as COINAtlantic
Interested in the Oceans?, Oceanography?, Marine Biology well, there's a Oceans'14 Conference
coming up later this year in St. John's NF later this year that may interest you.
Seems that Atlantic Canada is the spatial place to be this year, and there's other things I'm sure that will come up in the coming months that we in the industry will be interested in also. So stay tuned and visit our corporate sponsors. Collectively, we are changing the way the world is viewed, not just the oceans.
How about you? Find anything interesting on Marine GIS to add to this thread?
Have a nice weekend everyone and Cheers,
