Long Caye in Lighthouse Reef: Introducing Web GIS to a Remote Island
Authors: Jess Altamira
This presentation addresses introducing GIS to the most isolated of places and shows how flexible its integration is to even the smallest of levels. The study area of this project is on Belize’s tropical island, Long Caye. Its owners seek to share its features to adventurous tourists and potential land owners. The web applications created in this project serve the purpose of island promotion and land management by transforming traditional descriptions of the island features into a web GIS.
