Internacional

ICAN es un proyecto del Programa IODE de la COI de la UNESCO, y los miembros de ICAN buscan desempeñar un papel de liderazgo en la creación de colaboraciones internacionales de valor para las naciones participantes, optimizando así la gobernanza regional en la gestión de zonas costeras y la planificación espacial marina.

Atlas

Los atlas son "...colecciones de mapas digitales y conjuntos de datos con tablas complementarias, ilustraciones e información que ilustran sistemáticamente la costa, a menudo con herramientas cartográficas y de apoyo a la toma de decisiones, todas las cuales son accesibles a través de Internet.."  O'Dea et al., 2007

Costeros

Vivimos en un planeta azul, con océanos y mares que cubren más del 70% de la superficie de la Tierra. Los océanos nos alimentan, regulan nuestro clima y generan la mayor parte del oxígeno que respiramos. Aproximadamente el 37% de la población mundial vive a menos de 100 km de la costa. (UNEP)

The CGG is a web-based tool for capturing basic metadata on an organization, project, publication or data set, links it to a spatial entity (i.e. polygon, line, or point), creates a KML file and facilitates its discovery on the internet by the Google search engine. The new version replaces the sequential process with a tab based interface that allows the user to easily move back and forth through the steps. It also makes more prominent the spatial entity capture step with the map always visible in the interface.

The new interface for the COINAtlantic GeoContent Generator (CGG) showing an example entry for the publication State of the Scotian Shelf Report: Emerging Issues. The map on the left of the interface shows the polygon that will be included in the resulting KML for the Scotian Shelf taken from the library of biogeographic boundaries included with the CGG


Other enhancements include the capability of entering a specific latitude and longitude coordinate as the spatial entity and uploading photographs to be included in the KML file. The CGG was designed to provide small organizations with a capability of making their data and information more visible on the internet. The CGG works together with the COINAtlantic Search Utility (CSU) that searches the internet for WMS and KML spatial data resources, including the KML’s built with the CGG and displays these resources on an interactive map. The CGG is available at http://www.marinebiodiversity.ca/coin/cgg/ and the  CSU at http://www.marinebiodiversity.ca/coin/csu/

An example of a CGG produced KML for the Moose River Restoration Project—Moose River Feasibility Study for the Clean Annapolis River Project in Nova Scotia showing in the COINAtlantic CSU map. The blue polygon is the Annapolis River watershed from the CGG library
