Summary
Abstract: The GLOWA Volta Geoportal is a joint contribution from the Department of Computer Science and Center for Development Research at the University of Bonn to improve the accessibility to diverse heterogeneous geoscientific resources of the GLOWA Volta. It is a Web-based information system providing easy interactive remote access to GLOWA Volta data stock and enable exchange of geoscientific information in spatial decision-making contexts. The project aimed at analyzing the physical and socio-economic determinants of the hydrological cycle in the Volta Basin in the face of global change in order to develop decision-support products. The GLOWA Volta database contains heterogeneous digital resources in several formats (vector geodata, remote sensing originated data, maps, tables, documents, model specific formats) for different research areas and topics related to integrated water resource management (IWRM). In addition, the GVP developed a web-based information system that provides easy interactive remote access to the GLOWA Volta datastock and enables the exchange of geoscientific information in spatial decision-making contexts (GVP Geoportal).
