The meeting was introduced by HM Commissioner, Colin Roberts CVO, and Head of the Polar Regions Department, Jane Rumble. The Government of South Georgia & the South Sandwich Islands team presented an overview of their activities over the past year and future ambitions following which there was a question and discussion session with stakeholders. The meeting concluded with a presentation from Russell Gibb and Daniel McCurdy of Geometria on their recent project to laser survey the whaling stations of South Georgia, who showcased some of their work and offered ideas for future use of the survey data.
