Citation CORDIO GIS dd/mm/yy
Abstract MASPAWIO provides access to marine spatial datasets, providing layers useful for marine spatial planning, management and research, from multiple primary and secondary sources, and contributing compiled information into other regional and global repositories. MASPAWIO was established in 2015 through collaboration with the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) with funding from the French Development Agency (AFD), and since then it has been supported by multiple projects, including those funded by WIOMSA and currently Norad. Each project supports primary or secondary data collection, compilation or analysis, and outputs are compiled to be made available in spatial data layers on MASPAWIO. MASPAWIO is powered by Geonode an open source software mounted on a Linux instance hosted on an Amazon cloud server under the domain http://maspawio.net/. The portal also integrates ArcGIS Online applications https://cordioea.net/outputs-results/maspawio/gis/ that aid in diversification and delivery of products in multiple formats.

Technical notes Content developed on MASPAWIO will be pushed to end-user regional and global resources such as the Africa Marine Atlas, Nairobi Convention Clearing House Mechanisms, OBIS and GBIF, to maximize access to data from the WIO for multiple purposes . Mechanisms for accomplishing this will include use of the Integrated Publishing Toolkit (IPT) etc, generating data publications … and making this workflow accessible to researchers and partners within the WIO to improve visibility and use of their data.
