Baltic Environmental Atlas

08 Apr 2001

This interactive map service presents environmental factors that primarily have an impact upon the loads of nutrients entering into the Baltic Sea, such as land use and population distribution. The data represents that status approximately at the end of the 1990s.

The service has been developed by GRID-Arendal, a UNEP affiliated environmental data and information center within two EU projects: Baltic on-line interactive geographical and environmental information service (BOING) and BALANS. BOING is a strategic demonstration project under the Information Society directorate of the Commission of the European Communities to improve accessibility to environmental information on nutrient pollution and eutrophication in the Baltic Sea Region. The BALANS project has developed a seamless land-cover characteristics database for the Baltic Sea drainage basin.

The technical solution is based upon ESRI's ArcGIS Server. Please examine and browse the map and comment on anything that can be adjusted!
The process of creating this map is further described in a report (available upon request).
