Résumé(disponible en anglais seulement)
The Atlantic Coastal Zone Information Steering Committee (ACZISC) has embarked on the first phase in the development of a geospatial data infrastructure in Atlantic Canada termed COINAtlantic. Many workshops have been held to date to refine the concept and to test it for acceptance with both potential users and data providers. A consensus was achieved at the third workshop to the effect that COINAtlantic would be an important component of an Integrated Coastal Management (ICM) Community of Practice in Atlantic Canada. The chapter provides a brief history of COIN, a summary of the results of the first three workshops and presents evidence of the technical and organizational readiness of the stakeholder community for COINAtlantic. This status report has been updated to document progress in the development of COINAtlantic to the beginning of 2009.
