GSI Japan releases Global Map of Guatamala regions

Japan: The Geospatial Information Authority of Japan (GSI) has released maps for the Guatamala region as part of the Global Map series it produces. These include the latest areas where floods and landslides have occurred by the tropical storm Agatha. The map is prepared by using Global Map Data.

These maps are freely available for non-commercial purposes.

Global Mapping project is an endeavour advocated by the Ministry of Construction (present Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport) in 1992 to develop a digital map (Global Map) covering the whole globe to accurately express the status of global environment, implemented in international cooperation of respective National Mapping Organizations (NMOs) of the world. The Global Map can be used for studying global environmental problems, etc.

The Global Map data development is underway steered by the International Steering Committee for Global Mapping (ISCGM). GSI serves as the ISCGM Secretariat which takes a central role of the project management. The GSI also provides developing countries with necessary technologies.

The details of the project are available at https://www.iscgm.org/ and https://www.globalmap.org/.
