Practical use of open source geo-information tools in Slovenia. Showcases: SAgMIS and Bioportal
In the article two information systems will be presented. SAgMIS is Slovenian agro
meteorological information system, which has been developed in Meteorological office
(Environmental Agency of Slovenia). The second is Bioportal developed in Centre for
Cartography of Fauna and Flora in Slovenia. SAgMIS and Bioportal are geo-information
system developed with open source tools, such as (mapserver, GRASS – GIS, php,
cartoweb, postgreSQL, …) 

The main purpose of SAgMIS is distribution of agrometeorological information to the
end user. There are two different types of data: point data (measurements of
meteorological and agrometeorological parameters in different station distributed in
Slovenian area) and spatialized data (radar and satellite images, interpolated values
of different meteorological and phenological data). All data are kept in postgres and
oracle relation databases in different computer servers. For visualization Cartoweb
(Camptocamp) is used. The end-user can choose between different baseline geographical
layers, such as terrain, topographic maps, orthophoto maps, rivers, borders of
different regions etc. All spatialized data are preprocessed and interpolated with
GRASS – GIS software. Satellite data are read directly from HDF5 format using GDAL
library and directly from remote servers using WMS protocol. 
Bioportal was developed for distributing fauna and flora data to the end users. The
structure of Bioportal is similar to SAgMIS. However Bioportal is a comprehensive web
– GIS information system with emphasis on data visualization which is more developed
than in SAgMIS.
