How does this Biodiversity Protection platform work?
This Med Biodiversity Protection Knowledge platform is a tool for you to access key information and data raising from a community of projects, combined with key relevant external sources where appropriate. It contains a spatial data viewer where you will be able to visualize who is active in the community and where they have been working on. The map viewer will allow you to combine spatial data from projects with external sources such as the map of protected areas or the most important ecological regions in the Mediterranean.
To accompany the viewer, there is a Library of resources containing main documents and multimedia material searchable by keywords.
- You can access the user manual for the spatial data viewer here.
