Marine GIS Applications

Category: 2019

This training course highlights the technologies used to measure Sea Surface Temperature and phytoplankton proxy data, as well as the main applications of these data such as primary production, fronts and time series variations. Participants will gain
hands-on experience with image analysis software to visualize and interpret the data in different contexts. Participants will get a brief introduction to some of the ways in which data from these different sources may be visualized and brought together
to give more complete information needed to support decision makers in marine management and policy development. Training will primarily be based on BILKO 3.4 and QGIS.

Marine GIS Applications for Integrated Coastal Zone Management

Category: 2019

This course will focus on integrated coastal zone management, in the sense that it needs to take on board the ecological, environmental, social and economic aspects of managing a coastal area or zone. The course provides an overview and hands approach on GIS applications necessary towards integrated coastal zone management including the data acquisition, processing, analysis and interpretation of spatial data. Participants will develop and build their own case study and make a short presentation at the end of the training course.

Remote Sensing of Coral Reefs

Category: 2019

The course provides an introduction to the capabilities of the Remote Sensing for the coral reefs mapping. This includes practices in processing of high spatial resolution remotely sensed data for mapping the nearshore coral reef communities. After the workshop, the trainees will be able to select the most appropriate satellite data in case, and to conduct required image processes on satellite image, as well as to produce final coral maps in GIS software.
