GIS was introduced within a Man and Biosphere Project in 1984 on a PRIME microcomputer. The outcome served as a basis for the worldwide first National Park Plan, which based completely on GIS data. The software based on UNIX servers. At this time it was used by all relevant staff groups. A few years ago, GIS was move to the central Bavarian administration cloud on MS Windows Basis. On this configuration, the NP will use ArcGIS online to share data with field workers and the public.
