Main GIS projects include:
• Participating in fieldwork in order to log tracks, locations and points of interest on a GPS device.
• kayak-based and boat-based surveys for mapping Posidonia oceanic seagrass meadows, and analysis of data with specialized software
• Creating maps for various in-house and external projects, using both raw and secondary GIS data.

• Creating “participatory GIS maps” based on the data collected from local communities.
