The Pegaso Coastal Atlas

One of the results of Pegaso project is an Atlas prototype for the Mediterranean and the Black Sea.

What is an Atlas? It is a systematic collection of maps that describes some aspects of the knowledge of a specific territory, and is usually complemented with text, images, tables or charts.

Pegaso Atlas is an online tool that is fully integrated in the Pegaso geoportal and combines interactive maps with text and images, organized in different sections or topics. The Pegaso Atlas is one of the three components of the Pegaso SDI (Map Viewer, Data catalogue and Atlas) developed to support coastal management in the framework of ICZM.



Purpose of the Atlas: The Atlas will engage stakeholders in coastal management. The PEGASO Atlas will consolidates essential data onto a state of the art mapping and visualization platform that allows end users to visualize, query, map, and analyze coastal data and PEGASO products (the Indicators factsheets, Integrated Regional Assessment products and other relevant outcomes related to the work made in PEGASO).

Benefits: By placing the Atlas directly in the hands of regional ocean stakeholders, PEGASO Atlas will supports collaborative decision making and robust regional and local coastal management and planning. Some of the benifits are:
