Nature-GIS: a project outline GISIG Nature-GIS partnership kick-off meeting Dublin, July 2 nd
Nature-GIS : a European thematic network for Protected Areas/Nature Preservation and Geographical Information Thematic network IST Programme, code IST-2001-34641 Start April 2002 Duration 36 months
Participants: GISIG JRC /IES Aberdeen University IONIC software University Evora Cemagref Regione Piemonte Tarnium University of Grenoble Joseph Fourier Euronatur Girona University, GIS Center Lulea University of Technology Ursit Ltd University of Cyprus VUGTK - Research Institute of Geodesy, Topography and Cartography Estonian Environment Information Centre University of West Hungary Jagiellonian University University of Zilina
Main objectives and output: Objectives Improving reporting related to the implementation of the EU Nature Protection and Biodiversity Policy area To support public access to data and information in the EU and in the new accession countries To raise awareness regarding the use of GI-GIS in this field Output Technical guidelines for GI data for protected areas Definition and demostration of a Web access to GI data The thematic network NATURE-GIS
Expected outcome: use of the Guidelines to implement GIS in protected areas demonstration of how is applicable web access to information in the field European awareness for a supra-national approach in GI management in protected areas establishment of a pan-European Nature- GIS group
