Since 2006, CEP-BCI has used Geographic Information System (GIS) tools to create thematic maps and overlays to visually show environmental and socio-economic information.
While this has been useful in supporting environmental planning and monitoring in the GMS, one constraint has been the static nature of most maps, such as those found in publications. This has meant they could not be updated and has resulted in outdated maps being used used even when newer or better information was available.
The GMS Interactive Atlas is addressing this issue by providing an online ‘living’ atlas, which will be regularly updated with the latest information on specific geographic features, infrastructure, development projects, socio-economic profiles, and more.
The Atlas places key base layers directly in the hands of non-technical users and decision makers, enabling them to customize and produce maps to meet their needs. With a click of the mouse, users can reveal features including rivers and protected areas, the distribution of ethnic groups, and tourist sites.
The GMS Interactive Atlas runs in any modern web-browser such as Internet Explorer 9, Google Chrome 13, and Firefox 11. It requires the download and one-time installation of the free Microsoft Silverlight plugin.
