Fish and Oceans Related Paper Sessions

Tues: 3.15pm – Steelhead Fisheries Management of Lower Santa Ynez River
Weds: 10.15am – Web-Based Oceans Applications

Echoing what Chris Thomas had said in an earlier session, the GIS Community is way behind the technology. I attended these sessions with the expectation that I would find all sorts of new approaches to GIS analysis and web mapping, specific to our work at DFO. Instead, I found that the groups presenting were only as advanced, or not as advanced as us. Murray Manson’s analysis work would have blown minds down here. And, who knew, MAPSTER is cutting edge!

One interesting point raised here that I later heard in Scott Morehouse’s Technology Keynote is regarding the need for a well-developed Semantic Network.
