Original cruiseship visit numbers and locations from IAATO (see FK-SAERI-201) for the period 2014-2015 have been processed in a way that could be imported and visualised in GIS. The dataseries was aquired as part of the Darwin Plus- funded project 'Marine Spatial Planning for the Falkland Islands' (July 2014-July 2016).

Lineage The original data were provided by IAATO and requested by the FIG Environmental Planning Department. The dataset contains numbers and details of cruiships visits in the Falklands, including how many passengers landed at the different sites. It is used in the MSP process to identify important areas for marine-based tourism. The data came as an excel file that required extensive cleaning and locations edited. The attributes for each location contain whether there was a landing, and if so number of pax (visitors, staff, crew) from the ship landed. The times of arrival and departure of pax onshore is also available (when no landing occur the times indiacte when the ship arrived and left the site).
