Geographic Information System in Topoi


Topoi WebGIS: please click on a map to access it

Topoi’s web-based Geographic Information System (WebGIS) is an online tool for spatial and geo-statistical depiction of geo-referenced data.

On the basis of modern reference maps, research results are presented by Topoi researchers in layer-based, raster or vector format. Use is made of, e.g. historical maps, elevation maps, contour maps, networks between settlements or drill core sites used in sedimentological research aimed at reconstructing landscapes. Detailed descriptions of the projects are available on the corresponding project websites.

The introductory WebGIS application shows all of the disciplines involved in research in the Excellence Cluster during Topoi I (2008 – 2012), indicating both their location and frequency of occurrence. This is followed by a depiction of all Topoi-I projects that created and/or used spatial maps.

To navigate within the map use the icons on the top menu bar of the WebGIS interface. The application complies with OGC specifications.
