Fisheries Training courses at HOORC

The Biokavango Project facilitated a three day GPS training course for Fisheries Division field officers which was undertaken at the HOORC GIS lab between July 28 -30. The aim of the course, conducted by the HOORC senior GIS technician, was to arm these officers with the critical tools needed to enhance their data collection process, especially in mapping data such as data needed to map fishing grounds by the different fishers groups (i.e. recreational, commercial and subsistence). This is one in a series of courses that the Biokavango Project has facilitated this year for the Fisheries Division. One of the most recent courses (May 11 - 15), also conducted by HOORC, was in database management whose aim was to empower the Fisheries Division in database management skills.
