'Vision' Interactive GIS Interface
30 October 2005
IES and SarVision have launched 'VISION', an Internet-interface using OpenGIS Consortium (OGC) technology for viewing remote sensing and GIS data online.
You can now use Vision to view GIS data and satellite images selecting your own combination of data and analytical indicators for different time periods with respect to the three IES prototype EnviroSecurity Assessment Case Studies in the Mataven area in the Colombian Guiana Shield Region, the Great Lakes region of Africa and Kalimantan, Indonesia.
An internet WebGIS component is a very powerful tool, enabling public access to mapping and monitoring information, increasing transparency and fostering accountability in numerous fields.
No special GIS software or high speed internet connection is needed.
