Working in maritime affairs as a GIS specialist I was responsible for the collection, maintenance and visualization of spatially referenced marine data. In particular I was involved in FishPopTrace, a large project on the population genetic structure of marine fish using DNA analysis. I developed web-based geovisualization tools and novel visualization concepts to communicate scientific results illustrating the population genetic structure of commercial fish species in EU waters. The details of this project and my work can be found on the FishPopTrace website:
I also performed spatial analysis to explore the links between environmental data such as ocean salinity and temperature and genetic population structure. This work is illustrated on the map browser to be found at:
The objective of my work was to communicate scientific research in support of sustainable fishing by guiding the improvement of fisheries management policies and to provide measures to support the control and enforcement of legislation to combat practices such as illegal fishing and fish product mislabeling in the marketplace.
I also developed an interactive web-based map tool as a pilot study to illustrate the importance of the fisheries sector as an employer in coastal communities throughout the EU. This study can be found at:
