ICAN Workshop 1 July 24-28, 2006: Potentials and Limitations of Coastal Web Atlases, Cork, Ireland

In this first of two Trans-Atlantic workshops, expert delegates examined the current situation by studying a broad variety of existing coastal web atlases from Europe and the US. The various common issues were identified and discussed (e.g., institutional support, atlas design and usability, data accessibility, data and metadata compatibility, web-based tools for decision-support, etc.). At this workshop, the Marine Irish Digital Atlas was also officially launched.
