I am an MSc student of Geographical Information Systems and Remote Sensing hailing from the temperate (or more appropriately, freezing!) waters of Cork, Ireland. As it happens, I'm also a qualified Dive-Master from the warmer Thai waters across the globe. In May/June next year, I am returning to the wonderful world of the deep, to conduct my thesis into how open source technology such as how QGIS (free open source GIS), Landsat (Freely available data from American Satellite) and other platforms such as OpenROV can contribute to an understanding of the shifting baseline phenomena.
Nice to be a part of this growing community and I hope to recontribute in the future!
