OSARA Collaborates on Atlas for Tierra del Fuego

In collaboration with the University of Magallanes’ GIS Laboratory, coordinated by Dr. Sergio Opazo, OSARA has been collaborating in the development of a thematic atlas for the Tierra del Fuego Archipelago to highlight tourism, ecological and cultural attractions. The project, funded by a FIC-R grant directed by Ernesto Davis, intends to produce high quality visual material and content in a bilingual book format, which is expected to be published in 2012. OSARA has coordinated the writing of the chapter entitled “Sub-Antarctic Ecology,” including the collaboration of 6 co-authors from the U.S., Chile and Argentina who synthesize a decade of first hand research and information on the region for a general audience, as well as to promote sustainable tourism.
