WWF Germany Conservation Atlas
The WWF Germany Conservation Atlas is a free, interactive digital atlas which allows anyone to view, explore and create maps of priority eco-regions. The atlas is viewable using both ESRI ArcReader (freeware) or ArcGIS (license required), programmes which allow for the viewing of various areal data and the execution of specific queries for each eco-region, including:
Basic levels - Cities, roads, rivers, lakes, satellite image, marine bathymetry, elevation, protected and conservation areas and WWF project areas.
Thematic levels - Terrestrial, freshwater and marine eco-regions, land cover, night lights (satellite image taken at night to see lights and cities), overground forest biomass, climate variables.
