First MarineFIND data seminar a success

The first of our monthly seminars was held last week. It clearly provided a good deal of stimulation and food for thought as the Q&A session at the end overran…always a good sign.

If you missed the first seminar we’d be happy to see you at the next one – scheduled for Thursday 21 June. The London venue is just three minutes’ walk from Waterloo on the South Bank. To book your place simply email: marinesupport@findmaps.co.uk

Please see previous blog for more details.
