Another Workshop Tour through the Mekong Delta has been accomplished last week (Dong Thap, An Giang, Ca Mau and Kien Giang). Subject of these workshops were advanced topics such as spatial data infrastructure principles and applying the WISDOM Information System as a data distribution tool in combination with an open source desktop GIS such as Quantum GIS to process geographic data derived through the WISDOM IS. All in all about 80 participants from DONRE, DART and DOST took part in the four workshops and were granted access to the WISDOM Information System. The WISDOM capacity building tour was flanked by a joint workshop with SIWRR held in January 2012 in Can Tho, to which all directors of DOST, DONRE and DARD have been invited (see here).
