Paraguay to get its national geoportal soon

Paraguay: The Itaipu Technological Park (PTI) in collaboration with the Ministry of Planning (STP), Paraguay, is developing the National Geoportal Paraguay (GPN-PY). Paraguay is the only country in Latin America that does not have a National Geoportal.

The portal is still a prototype and will be completed in phases. In the first phase, basic information from institutions will be processed into digital format. Users will have free access to this information. In the next stage, users will be given a provision to upload geo-referenced information.

The geoportal will provide information regarding maps of political boundaries, water, educational institutions, hospitals etc, throughout the country. As of now, the agencies are compiling all the information available at the state level.

The portal will contain digital map data and associated data of Paraguay.
