Note: the online survey is now closed. We wish to thank all the respondents for sharing their expertise!
At the beginning of the ARKKI project, an online survey was done to collect end-users’ and other stakeholders’ views and opinions. The purpose of this survey was to identify what are the most significant challenges in Arctic navigation as experienced from the users’ perspective. Although we have chosen the word “navigation” to describe the activity of interest, we would like to emphasize that the scope of the survey comprises various applications that involve the use of geospatial information, such as transport, mining, and mobile location-based services (LBS). Also note that the scope is not strictly tied to “Arctic” in terms of the Arctic Circle: similar challenges are applicable to certain areas at lower latitudes, such as Iceland.
It is not possible to respond to the survey anymore, but anyone interested can take a look at the survey questions.
