Geospatial Data Collection – Standard Policy for Fisheries

Feb 23, 2023


Fisheries researchers and managers are approaching a new frontier where spatial data and interactive mapping applications will be easily accessible and the collection of spatial location data simple and straightforward. Spatial analysis software is also becoming easily accessible through open source avenues. These powerful GIS tools are increasingly being applied to assessment and analysis of fisheries issues. Don’t be left behind; the collection of geospatial data should be a standard for any kind of fisheries research and management.
