This online geographic information system (GIS) is linked to several data centers located around the world. As of 2014, more than 1,000 datasets are referenced by its catalog. All information in the catalog can be accessed using a GIS interface that enables users to visualize information on renewable energy resources, and to overlay additional information, including population density, topography, local infrastructure, land use and protected areas. The tool’s map gallery provides access thematic maps covering specific regions and project-specific resources and datasets.
