Revised web maps for UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Hugo Ahlenius of Nordpil was contracted to migrate these maps to a contemporary platform.
The data was migrated from ArcSDE to ESRI ArcGIS file geodatabases, and the maps were re-created in ArcMap as mxd-files, then deployed on ArcGIS Server as dynamic map services.
The new map views have increased performance, more interactive features and full compatibility with modern web browsers, including for phones and tablets, without any dependencies on plugins such as Flash and Silverlight.
The map services are:
- Arctic Environmental Atlas
- Baltic Environmental Atlas
- Uganda Biofuels Atlas
