Scientific Cooperation to Support Responsible Fisheries in the Adriatic Sea

ATrIS


ATrIS is the acronym for AdriaMed Trawl Surveys Information System, it has been developed by the FAO AdriaMed project in close cooperation with the research institutes cooperating with the Project thus providing a flexible common environment to standardize the trawl survey data collected in the AdriaMed demersal trawl surveys.

ATrIS is a computerized system developed to organize storage and undertake the preliminary analysis of the dataset available after the AdriaMed trawl surveys started in 2001.

The system, MS/Access based, offers some basic utilities to interface data with the Geographical Information System (GIS) and the possibility for easy exchange of date with other common software systems or data format (e.g. MEDITS). Moreover, while trawl survey data constitutes the bulk of the data held in the system, the database design allows for any data to be stored (e.g. ATrIS has been used to store rapido trawl data).

ATrIS has been distributed among all the AdriaMed collaborating institutes and external entities that requested the application to the Project. At the moment, eleven Adriatic research institutions use ATrIS thus making it the common and standard database used among the Adriatic countries.

The QUICK START DEMO in only 4.48 min. shows the overall use of the ATris Application.

P.S.:The application is provided with a test data set only.


ATrIS is divided in 6 sections: DATA CONFIGURATION; IMPORT/EXPORT DATA; DATA INPUT AND RETRIEVAL; DATA ANALYSIS; BIOLOGICAL INDICATORS; CONSISTENCY CONTROL.

For each section we have developed a single demo that explain his use and functionality.
