The computer center of fisheries data is stocked with state-of-the-art hardware and software. For the purpose of supporting the integrated management of fisheries data (Integrated Fisheries Information System, IFIS), a platform which consists of servers databases, geographic information systems and statistical packages has been designed. To support the local area network (LAN) and wide area network (WAN) applications management of the data of IFIS, the necessary equipment that provides secure Internet access has been used.
Through the network, seamless communication is also ensured between the branches of Athens and Heraklion. To improve bathymetric data and support field work, the Institute is equipped with an advanced seabed mapping system.
