This document outlines a proposal from the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) to provide a Geographical Information System (GIS) for CCAMLR. The proposal offers a web-based GIS that will provide state-of-the-art capacity for managing spatial data for CCAMLR, particularly the types of information managed by WG-EMM. It also proposes joint working with the Secretariat to enable capacity building in handling geographic information, and a phased handover of system development and maintenance to the Secretariat.
BAS is well-placed to offer these geographic information services, with over 10 years of experience in developing award-winning web-based GIS and spatial data access systems.
The proposal offers a staged approach involving different levels of complexity and commitment. At this stage the document only includes indicative costs but can be followed up with a more detailed, fully-costed proposal.
