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.
