Geoinformatics portal

The Geoinformatics Portal is part of ICARDA’s Geoinformatics Unit integrated systems research portfolio. The portal provides easy access to comprehensive information including all geospatial genres in a streamlined system: remote sensing, GIS, and spatial modeling, as well as access to data, tools and maps.

Geo-Informatics portal is implemented using mainly open source solutions: Python and GDAL(Geospatial Data Abstraction Library) library for the backend and PHP, MySQL for the front-end. The Geo-Store systems, which is storing the map’s metadata and previews, is implemented based on state of the art programming patters like DDD (Domain-Driven Design) over MVC (Model-View-Controller), therefore the entire system is easily scalable and extensible.
