The course introduces GIS concepts and techniques using ArcGIS 10. It describes available Coastal and Marine GIS datasets, which also form the basis for the course exercises. A project showcase, drawn from ABPmer's portfolio, illustrates how these datasets can be used within GIS to support coastal and marine decision making.

The course considers common problems faced when mapping the coastal and offshore zones (including projections, vertical datums, etc.) and offers a GIS Clinic, where delegates have the opportunity to discuss their own specific issues with the experts.
