Presentation of the Development of the VTI Virtual Research Environment (VTI) to NAFO STACREC Science Council Meeting
The use of Vessel Transmitted Information by fishery scientists is rapidly growing. The continuous improvement of their detail and volume has opened exciting new possibilities for scientist working in the fields of marine biology, ecology and environmental sciences. The often confidential and sensitive VTI data require that the community searches for new but solid technology solutions. In addition, the nearly real-time availability of satellite products, a possibility that could only be dreamed of a few years ago, call for a coordinated effort to develop data-products that assist scientists to discover, filter and integrate multidisciplinary data.
