METADATA AND CARTOGRAPHY ONLINE
On line cartography is now available through cartographic metadata. This cartographic information is distributed through the guidelines in the Standards for Digital Geospatial Metadata of FGDC-NBII (Federal Geographic Data Committee – National Biological Information Infrastructure) ,1996.
The cartographic information is queried through a database which is organized based on catalogs like: theme (biotic, physical and social aspects, regionalization and others), scales and geographic area. The metadata content is presented into three items: basic information, reports of the information (methodology) and spatial data information.
The cartography is available on line at no charge in distinct formats like: export file for Arc/Info (.E00) and shapefile (ESRI), and DXF (Drawing eXchange Format).
Cartography is presented in cartographic projections: Lambert Conic Conformal, UTM and geographic coordinates system.
GIF format of map images is obtained as well.
