In August 2006, the ship Probo Koala dumped 528 cubic metres of toxic waste around the port of Abdijan, Côte d'Ivoire. MapX supported spatial data management for the independent environmental audit.
Biodiversity, Land Use Planning, Reporting
The UN Biodiversity Lab is a partnership framework for using spatial data to inform national biodiversity planning and reporting. The application is powered by MapX.
To help eliminate PCBs from the environment, MapX supports the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants by managing spatial data for countries reporting to the Convention.
Land Use Planning, Renewable Energy
MapX is establishing a spatial database infrastructure to support UN Environment's country programme and to pilot test mapping of renewable energy infrastructure.
Extractives, Land Use Planning
As the extractives sector embraces increasing transparency, stakeholders face a series of new challenges. These relate to avoiding data fragmentation, duplicating and dispersing available data, and providing access to actionable information for evidence-based decision making.
Land Use Planning, Natural Hazards
The PREVIEW Global Risk Data Platform is a multiple agencies effort to share spatial data information on global risk from natural hazards. The main objective of the project is to migrate the PREVIEW system onto the MapX platform.
