Objective

ECO-IMAGINE is a group of 8 events on the complementarity between Integrated Coastal Management(ICM) and Geo-information/GIS as support tool.The initiative runs with an interdisciplinary approach in order to better integrate the different coastalaspects; a science based approach, as per the Johannesburg 2002 Summit, is ensured by a state of artemployment of GIS.Relevance is given to planning and management of coastal landscape as the meeting point between naturaland human features of the coast.3 Working Gro ups are foreseen, to address the main features in this field:-Building Coastal Knowledge and GI.

Integrated management and planning of waterfront as core areasfor the sustainable development of a wider context. In particular will be emphasised the role of GIS inintegrating waterfronts into the territorial scale A 4th cross-cutting working group deals with the technological features of GI and their applications in thevarious fields of ICM.ECO-IMAGINE consists of:-two general conferences: the initial one to introduce the theme, the objectives and the Working Groups ;the last one to make a summary of the events and of the initiative achievements-three thematic conferences focusing issues and state of the art relevant to each Working Group-three Training Courses in order to practically approach the themes discussedAn e ffective network building and generation of added value is ensured by proper tools as the website and aVirtual Permanent Conferenc
