Gis Mapping Services
Contact person: Drs. John de Freitas MBA
Carmabi has conducted GIS-based vegetation mapping on all the islands of the Dutch Antilles. The methods used are landscape-based mapping methods combining the use of high-resolution aerial photographs with field sampling based on quadrants. Mapping projects are based on GIS base maps which have been produced by Carmabi for several islands, including the Saba Bank.
