UBVU and SPINlab introduce a refined version of the GIS portal

The University Library together with the Spatial Information Laboratory (SPINlab) have worked on a new version that now allows access to more data sets. Functionalities were improved so that everybody at the VU can create own maps and datasets as well as store and publish them. A complete redesign and a range of manuals have greatly improved comprehensibility. New datasets are continuously added to the catalogue. The goal is to make spatial data accessible to students, courses and researchers from a variety of academic fields.
