National Sea Information System
The SNIMar project aimed to develop a geoportal to facilitate access to information on the marine environment in Portugal.
The SNIMar Geoportal is now online and can be accessed here.
Also worthy of note in this project is the development of educational resources on the importance of marine information that feeds the SNIMar geoportal.
We are a family owned and operated business.
The SNIMar geoportal is a spatial data infrastructure (IDE) that constitutes a central point for aggregating, researching and providing geographic information on the marine environment in Portugal. It is a web interface that will enhance public access to the information provided by partners and entities participating in SNIMar.
The geoportal is based on a metadata catalog that provides an easy, targeted and effective search, through related themes, keywords or words.
This IDE is fed through local catalogs of partner and participating entities. Each local catalog includes data sets / geographic services and their metadata.
Through the geoportal it is possible to perform:
• Search in the metadata catalog;
• View and download data.
Refers to the technological development of this application is based on OpenSource technologies, that is, open source software, free and unrestricted use.
