Smart Altitude

Alpine winter tourism territories demonstrating an integrated framework for a low-carbon, high-impact and resilient future

Smart Altitude WebGIS

Part of the Smart Altitude project is the development of a web-based GIS application to visualize territorial assets, untapped renewable energy potential and key performance indicators for the living labs and the replication sites. A geographic Information System (GIS) is a computer system designed to capture, store, manipulate and present spatial (or geographic) data. GIS can show many different kinds of data on one map, using any information that includes a location. In this way, people can compare different elements in order to understand how they relate to one another. The GIS application is one of the project tools that will support the prioritization of low-carbon operations. It will be integrated into the Smart Altitude Toolkit for policy makers and other stakeholders. The Smart Altitude WebGIS will be made available in the five partner languages (EN, DE, FR, IT, SL) and linked to the Alpine knowledge platform WIKIAlps (www.wikialps.eu).
