COINAtlantic Data Sharing Philosophy
The COINAtlantic Chain for Information Access is the philosophy underpinning the development of the COINAtlantic spatial tools, and can be described as a five-step process. The goal of this process is to provide tools that allow users with little technical knowledge, using only a computer, an Internet browser and an Internet connection, to find and access spatial information, data and maps published by others. COINAtlantic has achieved success through the development of the COINAtlantic GeoContent Generator (CGG) and the COINAtlantic Search Utility (CSU) that address the key steps in the chain.
Bringing Data Together with the COINAtlantic Advantage
As 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.
