El Salvador´s National Map is now available on the Cloud. The National Geographic Institute of this country is the first governmental institution in Latin America to stage its geospatial data using this innovative mechanism.
The GeoSUR Portal provides an entry point to spatial data published by Latin American and Caribbean agencies. The data may be consulted directly by means of partner map services, a regional map viewer contained in this portal or through various metadata services.
Most of the spatial information available in this portal is available in map services operated by participating agencies in a decentralized fashion. These services are owned by spatial data producers from the region. These institutions register their various geoservices and their metadata with the portal in order to make them available to the public. No special skills or special software is required to use the portal; it is free and open to the public.
The GeoSUR Program is led by CAF - the Latin American Development Bank and PAIGH the Pan American Institute of Geography and History. The Portal was developed with the technical support of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)..
