New database on Arctic shipping and resources
The Centre for High North Logistics has launched ARCTIS, a dynamic searchable online database on shipping in Arctic waters, transportation infrastructure, mineral and energy resources, and innovative logistics solutions in the Arctic.
-Currently such information, data, and knowledge on the Arctic is scattered within a large number of organizations in several countries, Centre for High North Logistics (CHNL) writes in a press release. – Our goal is to collect all the most relevant information on above topics under one roof in ARCTIS. No other database with such a focus exists today.
CHNL strives to become the preferred gateway to information and knowledge for businesses, governments, and the research/educational community on shipping in Arctic waters and on Arctic marine transport infrastructure.
The information in ARCTIS is arranged into eight main topics: Arctic Sea Ice & Climatology; Arctic Marine Transport & Logistics; Arctic Sea Routes; Arctic Maps & Charts; Arctic Energy & Mineral Resources; Arctic Policies & Governance; People, Industries & Institutions; and a General topic.
ARCTIS will provide up-to-date and quality information on above topics managed by a group of more than 40 theme editors.
