When picturing the Arctic, people from warmer latitudes are likely to imagine frozen tundra and lonely steppe. Add global warming to this and the vision shifts to melting ice caps and desperate fauna.

But the Arctic is much more than that. It is a region of community and a land of opportunity. With immense fisheries forming the backbone of its blue economy, and renewable resources in abundance. Armed with a new appreciation for the traditional knowledge of native Arctic populations, as well as modern tools and data analysis, the Arctic Economic Council is working to ensure its full potential is realised.

But to make this happen, industry needs data. It needs to understand the ground risks, and the resources available. It needs to understand the foundations of the arctic.
