Understanding our islands: How to get the best out of our GIS and our data 2015


The first in a series of UKOT Biodiversity strategy workshops was held in Gibraltar in 2012, where Overseas Territory and UK GIS experts came together to share GIS experience, and initiate a strategy for development of GIS-based approaches to environmental management in the UK’s Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies. The Territories expressed a wish to meet again to finalize an OT/CD strategy, including use of these systems in ecosystem assessments, economic evaluations and data management.

A series of workshops held in 2015 on the Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) follow-up on that request. The TCI workshops focussed on addressing the issue of better access to data, and the provision of training for spatial data management through cross-territory skill-shar, and developing links with UK technical expertise.
