information for three cities
Cities expand and change and planners need to be sure they have the
latest environmental information. Citizens too may want the same data, in order to
participate in decision-making or keep abreast of local environmental issues. Modern
computers and powerful databases have made it easier to provide access to such
THE CITY project is enabling organisations and individuals in three European cities to
access environmental information on their locale. People living in Munich, Antwerp and
Athens can access, via the Internet, the geographical information systems (GIS). The
project's databases and associated technologies are designed to allow users to create
their own GIS databases for web usage.
The service enhances public and political information on the environment. The tools
developed could also be commercialised, especially the Internet GIS software.
Visitors to THE CITY stand may examine the Internet Map Server toolkit. The toolkit
features three applications; one for each of the cities involved in the project trials.
