GALPIS-WEB is a so-called Web-GIS. Casually speaking, you could call it an interactive atlas on the internet. Essentially, it is a database containing a vast amount of space-related data which, by means of suitable software, is allocated to spatial reference units and represented as interactive maps on the internet. Content, selection and display of each map are controlled by the user. In other words: "maps on demand". GALPIS-WEB is an interactive web-based atlas of Austria which contains an extensive inter-disciplinary database on land use, land cover, ecology, biodiversity, agriculture, population statistics, settlements, and tourism, for all municipalities of Austria.
