Dynamic Atlas
Dynamic Atlas (DA)
Dynamic Atlas is a suite of information publishing and access tools developed by FAO-Environment, Climate Change and Bioenergy Division (NRC) and SKE Inc., Canada. Dynamic Atlas allows organizations to publish and access information from national to local scale by using technologies "ready-to-go", which means easy to implement and use.

DA Architecture, pict. by SKE These generic technologies enable the publishing of maps, databases, and documents with the click of a button. The diagram on the right outlines the architecture that is built around the concept of a corporate warehouse(s) of related data. Development and maintenance of systems based upon DA is very easy for organizations even in partnership with other units.

Dynamic Atlas components are:

Dynamic Maps

MAP It is the viewer of Dynamic Atlas. It displays "atlases" of data and information and allows users the browsing of maps, which are used as a "library" for related documents and web links. Dynamic Maps can easily export maps in PowerPoint and perform related data analysis in Excel. Integration with commercial databases is also supported. [Details..]

Dynamic Knowledgebase
