The SAFI story so far...

After two years of collaborative work, the SAFI initiative is now in its final phase. All the products that have been created and validated during the first two years of the project will now be combined and packaged under the SAFI service, designed to serve the needs of the aquaculture and fisheries communities by making the widest use of Earth Observation information. 

The SAFI service is built to support commercial companies, consultants, resource managers, reseaerchers and education sectors. In doing so it has allowed us to communicate the potential of EO capabilities, and improve research. 

In this issue of our Newsletter, we present some of the outcomes of SAFI, show-casing the variety of activities on both the economic and academic/research sides of the project. A key result of the project to date discussed in this issue is the first release of the SAFI WebGIS tool which allows for handling and visualisation of SAFI information products. A demo version of this tool is open and free to use, and feedback on the service is more than welcome! Simply go to http://safiservices.ucc.ie and explore the information provided.

If you want to be kept up-to-date on a more regular (and dynamic) basis of the SAFI initiative, or want to contribute some very welcome feedback, be sure to follow us on twitter @SAFIServicesEU for continuous updates on the project progress.

Enjoy your reading!
