Geo-Spatial Infrastructure for National and Sub-Nat. Boundaries & Data
Track: Spatial Data Infrastructure
Authors: Bruno Bonansea
The World Bank has developed several web-based services that greatly improve the ability to make high quality map products that visualize local context. The new infrastructure is comprised of two main components (i) a suite of basemaps with subnational boundaries serviced online and (ii) a subnational geo-spatial API for development indicators. The map services are designed to work in harmony with the Indicators API to easily visualize local (subnational) and national development data.
