Epigenesis Dedicated GeoNetwork Platform


Secured Online GIS data Catalogue

Relevant geographic information of the whole Caribbean region is being collected: animal and human population data, animal health and environmental information.

All this data is stored in a dedicated GeoNetwork Platform, which is a catalog application to manage spatially referenced resources.

Data is attributed to different user groups, and access rights are granted based on this grouping. GeoNetwork provides powerful metadata editing and search functions as well as an embedded interactive web map viewer. It is currently used in numerous Spatial Data Infrastructure initiatives across the world.

Having those shapefile stored will ease development of any GIS map using GQIS - a free open source geographic information system, and publish the maps online using Lipzmap application, also free and open source.

CaribVET is compiling all those tools under a single Platform "Caribbean Veterinary Information System" that will soon be available on the CaribVET website for use of the CaribVET groups, project and member countries.
