ArcticSDI: Functionality & Sustainability
Demonstration of the Arctic SDI Geoportal
Demonstration of the Arctic SDI Geoportal, a cooperative effort between the National Mapping Agencies of the eight Arctic Council Member countries.
The video illustrates both the importance and capabilities of authoritative services provided by National Mapping Agencies of the eight countries adjacent to the Arctic. It illustrates how common standards allow the integration of data independent of national borders, local projection systems, or other national particularities.
The Arctic SDI Geoportal allows the rapid generation of customized maps that can be integrated into any web site. Thanks to the underlying standards and infrastructure, these apps auto-update themselves when new data becomes available.
