AQ - Antarctica
AQ is the 2-letter ISO3166 code for Antarctica and ".aq" is the internet "country" domain for the Antarctic.
Latitude Technologies then Latitude Solutions were founded upon extensive experience in various aspects of
- Antarctic research;
- Management and support of this research; and
- governance, management and protection of the Antarctic region.
This involved a wide range of projects encompassing field-work, research, education and international relations.
We continue to apply to our work and incorporate in our solutions the Antarctic spirit and values, and in particular those of:
- Collaborative governance;
- Consensus decision making;
- Collaborative work and pooling of resources; and
- Open sharing of information.
