Haiti gets new geoportal for spatial and environmental data

SHARE

Haiti: The Center for International Earth Science Information Network has recently launched the Haiti GeoPortal for the Republic of Haiti. According to CIESIN, the Haiti Geoportal is a platform for spatial and environmental data and resources from ongoing research in Haiti as part of the broader Haiti Research and Policy Program at the Earth Institute at Columbia University.

Featuring an online interactive map component, the Haiti Geoportal has been designed to let communities and partners download maps that provide benchmarks for core integrated development indicators, household socio-economic variables and environmental features. The data covers geographic extents that range from national scale to local communities in Haiti. The Web site contains a data library and a searchable bibliography of materials from the EI and non-EI sources, including scientific reports, literature and data visualisation videos.
