Course Overview: 

When: July 26- August 4, 2009 

Where: Marine Protected Area of Capo Rizzuto - Crotone, Italy 

The course organized by Mappamondo GIS in collaboration with the Capo Rizzuto Marine Protected Area, represents a unique training initiative that offers the chance to learn Geographic Information Systems and Remote Sensing methodologies while becoming a certified SCUBA diver in the context of marine environment management and science. 

Participants are introduced to the underwater world through PADI Open Water Diver and specialty courses, and to GIS through leading ESRI authorized classes. The skills gained are put into practice on a real case study concerning marine habitat mapping from remotely sensed images and finding associations among biotic and abiotic components using GIS. 
Marine fauna and flora, habitat and GIS data are collected in the field while SCUBA diving or snorkeling. 

The course is at its 4th edition. It will be held from the 26th of July to the 4th of August in the Capo Rizzuto Marine Protected Area, Crotone - Italy.
