WebGIS Projects

The IMS-GIS data centre has contributed to the development of a few webGIS projects which allow the visualisation of data that organisations and individual researchers made visible to the public. A general and simple guide for navigating the webGIS project is available here.

All the data in the webGIS projects have a metadata record in the online catalogue. Since it is not yet possible to download the data displayed on the interactive maps, all users interested in the data should consult the metadata record and email the data request form to either the data custodian or the data owner (as specified in the metadata record).

Users of the webGIS projects should consider the following points before starting consulting the maps and using them.

  • The webGIS project is a collection of datasets provided by various data sources. By clicking on the “i” icon, see figure below, the metadata with information on the data source is displayed. Please cite the name of the data sources followed by the year of update (see red boxes below).

                  

  • Any reproduction of the content of the webGIS project, for instance snap shots of the online maps, should be acknowledged as stated in the webGIS project metadata. This is accessed by clicking on the icon “information” as showed below.
