ICT4D Atlas


We are pleased to host The International Development Research Centre (IDRC)'s ICT4D Atlas, a downloaded digital earth for representing spatial data. We call it Web 1.5, which is perfect if you are in a country with limited or no bandwidth.

According to the site:

This interactive tool highlights results of research networks in Asian, Latin American and African countries. The Atlas will help the user understand better the territorial issues associated with ICT indicators and help build evidence to inform policymakers in these regions. We hope through this project that individuals at all levels (government, academic, NGO, civil society and private sector) will access, populate and visualize relevant multiregional geographical information in order to promote dialogue and engender change. In support of this vision, the project will refine and further develop and disseminate a scalable Free and Open Source spatial platform from existing technologies that will increase open access to relevant information and build awareness and capacity through participatory knowledge sharing.
