Taiwan: To deal with the food crisis, Chiayi Experimental Branch Station, Central Research Institute in Taiwan, has built a WebGIS system in order to have long-term monitor on the habitats of horticultural crop wild relatives and observe the evolution trend. This system aims to assist the sustainable use of creature inheritance resources and conservation.
The system uses the Internet map server, SuperWebGIS 2.1, a professional solution from SuperGeo for delivering dynamic maps and GIS data along with GIS services via the Web. Through the system, users can query, display and modify the species without installing other Internet browser objects. They can also utilise SuperWebGIS to update, publish, share and manage the data with ease.
With WebGIS techniques, users can clearly recognise the growth and decline of the crop gene database and its evolution trend.
