The COINAtlantic Advantage:
Working with a world expert in open source geospatial tools, COINAtlantic builds on an Atlantic Canadian partnership to improve access to coastal and oceans information for use in management and planning. COINAtlantic tools take advantage of established standards and share your location-based data and information in an internet searchable form.
COINAtlantic Geospatial Tools
The CSU is a free online utility that allows users to access geospatial information that meets user’s search criteria, lists the results in the form of data layers, and displays chosen layers on an interactive map. Layers can be organized and added by the user to create informative maps quickly and easily.
The CGG is a free online utility that allows users to generate and publish geospatial polygons that describe a publication or data etc. online that will be found by the Google search engine. It is intended to be a simple-to-use tool that will allow non-specialists to allow others to find and view ‘GeoContent’ - metadata about projects/data etc. that is tied to a geographic area.
The COINAtlantic Data Accessibility Tool is for use in organizations to develop a benchmark to monitor progress in improving an organization’s policies and procedures for providing effective and easy access to the data and information held by them.
