The Conservation GeoPortal: An example of a shared geospatial resource
The Conservation GeoPortal ( is a new collaborative
effort to build, share, and communicate geospatial information for biodiversity
conservation. This work supports the principles and objectives of the Conservation
Commons and is the first phase of developing a World Conservation Basemap and World
Atlas of Conservation. The GeoPortal is primarily an Internet-based metadata catalog
with a map viewer, intended to provide a comprehensive listing of GIS data sets and
map services relevant to biodiversity conservation. This presentation will describe
the process and framework used to develop the Conservation GeoPortal and will suggest
ways that the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) can benefit and contribute.
