COMNAP Database

COMNAP Database

Project managers: Steve Foga & Andrea Colombo
EXCOM: Michelle Rogan-Finnemore

Providing information in relation to the capabilities of national Antarctic program is a significant responsibility, and one that all programs take very seriously. It is also an obligation that places a burden on already busy national Antarctic program staff, who must provide the information into multiple databases and systems and must ensure that the provision of data into each is done in a timely manner that addresses the need for currency in the data.

COMNAP developed the database via the US Polar Geospatial Center with the support and leadership of the US National Science Foundation Office of Polar Programs, and with input from all COMNAP Member national Antarctic programs. The COMNAP Secretariat uses the database and portions are shared with the Antarctic Treaty Secretariat.
