What is a Geoportal?

A Geoportal is used to find and access geographic information (geospatial information) and associated geographic services. These services allow the user to display, edit, analyse, and manipulate geographic data via the Internet.

From this site you will be able to access various Geographic web based services including our Map Viewer.  New services will be added as they are developed so remember to keep visiting this site to check for new additions.

What is GIS?

GIS means Geographic Information System which is a system for storing and manipulating geographical information using computers. GIS uses range from searching computer based maps and way finding to location based analysis and calculations.
