Maps on the Web

About Putting Maps and Geographic Data on the Web

Putting Maps and Geographic Data on the Web is a new national geospatial training effort of the UConn Center for Land Use Education and Research (CLEAR) and the University of Rhode Island Coastal Institute.  In just the last few years, the fusion of geospatial and web technologies have created unprecedented potential for the sharing of data, images, maps and information over the web, in a way that is easily accessible to all – including the non-GIS savvy.   These technologies include open source Geographic Information System (GIS) methods and “mashup” technologies that allow the interplay of data with popular web-mapping sites such as Google Maps and Google Earth.  Through workshops, webinars, and this website, this project is helping researchers and educators learn how to use these technologies in their research and outreach programs.  The project is funded by a four-year competitively-awarded grant from the USDA/NIFA National Integrated Water Quality Program.

Project Partners:  CLEAR, NIFA, National NEMO Network, University of Rhode Island Coastal Institute, University of New Hampshire, New England States and Caribbean Islands Regional Water Program, Map@syst.
