ArcIMS for ICZM Information: The UK Coastal Map Creator
Track: Ocean, Coastal, and Marine Resources
Author(s): David R. Green, Stephen D. King
An initiative involving the authors, Esri (UK), and Bartholomew was recently undertaken to build the UK Coastal Map Creator. Using Esri's ArcIMS 3 software, maps and data, specifically designed for users and managers of the UK coastal zone, can be delivered over the Internet. Bartholomew 1:200,000 raster data forms the navigational basemap with postcode and gazetteer data ability to search the database by town name or postcode. Other data such as aerial photography, satellite imagery, and LIDAR will be added to the system to create an online geospatial coastal information resource for the UK.
