Prague 2002 Results
Intro | Results| Next steps

Participants provided data and metadata on carbon measurements generated in their countries and the institutes involved in the research. Although useful, the data provided was insufficient to be used with participants in the working sessions. It is also difficult to assess what measurements have actually been made (but are difficult to access) and if actual data gaps exist.

Dynamic atlas was positively received and participants acknowledged that it could be a useful tool which institutes could use to better manage their data and increase data access to external users. The adoption of such a system would also encourage method and data standardization and increase the compatibility of diverse data sets needed in regional and global studies. Dynamic Atlas and other software developed by FAO will be made freely available to scientists involved in the TCO initiative.
