Information system for marine aquatic resource quality


Project timeline
May 2002
36 months
April 2005
General Information
The overall goal of the project is to develop a Geographic Information System (GIS) which can exploit diverse data resources in order to deliver 'best estimate' information on environmental quality of coastal waters. By integrating data from many sources and models, the system will be designed to meet the varying information priorities within different markets. Development of the system will require noveladvances withina GIS context of data management, fusion and modelling techniques, which have not been achieved in previous work. The developed system will be validated in three pilot regions in France/Italy, Germany and UK.
