Relevant university teachers to update their curricula on environmental ICT;
Environmental researchers not previously exposed to this area.


Previous exposure to advanced geospatial technologies is not required, but overall computer literacy is essential due to practical computer exercises. The maximum effect will be achieved through involvement of the leaders in geospatial ICTs development and application (e.g. GOOGLE and ESRI).
