Welcome to the Falkland Islands Data Portal, a community-driven catalogue of data

For data requests or other enquiries, please contact the IMS-GIS Data Centre Manager at datamanager@saeri.ac.fk.


The data portal was realised thanks to a collaboration between the Information Management System-GIS data centre (SAERI) and the Satellite Receiving Station at the University of Dundee.

The data portal was completed in parallel to the Montserrat data portal

Project members: iLaria Marengo (SAERI-GIS specialist and data manager), Andrew Brooks (University of Dundee-software engineer, now at EPCC University of Edinburgh)

Open Source:
