As part of the ongoing work carried out by Technical Services Department, the map on the Geoportal has been updated to include the most recent completed developments.
Following the successful launch of the Gibraltar Geoportal, the Department of the Environment and Climate Change together with the Information Technology and Logistics Department have recently finalised upgrading Gibraltar’s Geoportal. The Geoportal is comparable to products such as Google Earth and Apple Maps but is more interactive and contains additional environmental and geographic information that can be used by the public and businesses alike. New features contained in the latest upgrade include an address web finder and population statistics data for Gibraltar.
A new GIS layer has been developed by RAF Gibraltar, the Director of Civil Aviation and ITLD to describe to Developers and Constructors the height limitations on construction imposed by safety requirements of aircraft operating into Gibraltar Airport. The overlay will allow Developers to “drop a pin” on the location they have decided to construct to discover the maximum height they are allowed to build and not impinge on the safe operation of aircraft operating from the Airport.
The Gibraltar base map has again been updated and now includes the new developemts around the Eastern Beach area, the new berths etc.
