|Network Node Andalusian Environmental Information|
Environmental Information Network of Andalusia (REDIAM), created by Law 7 / 2007 dated July 9, of Integrated Management of Environmental Quality (GICA), aims to integrate all the information on the andalusian environment generated by producing all types of environmental information centers in the Autonomous Community.
Since 1984, the Environmental Management of the Government of Andalusia has developed a work on the collection, coordination, and Consistency of information about the state of the environment and natural resources of the Autonomous Community of Andalusia. This program, called SinambA (GIS-environmental Andalusia), is the antecedent of the REDIAM and becomes its core technology in terms of normalizing baselines, metadata, structure, etc.
The Department of Environment, responsible for organizing, managing and evaluating the network, supports collaboration agreements with universities, research centers, businesses, social organizations, and promotes collaboration policies with other government authorities in order to integrate and coordinate existing information systems and ensure the flow of the environmental information available.
It is available to partner institutions, the generated common bases of environmental information and, as well as technical criteria commonly used for environmental information gathering, coding dictionaries of a large number of environmental variables and management software for such information. In return, the network of partner institutions raise information with common land bases, and provide the other partner institutions part or all of the information thus created.
Its aim is to make available to the public the whole environmental standard information in Andalucia, offering the data available for analysis as well as technical elaborations on the status of natural resources, the pressures to which they are subjected by the anthropic activity and regulations, that in response, try to establish a framework of environmental sustainability.
Among the many services that the REDIAM make available to users, there is a section providing access to large volumes of geo-referenced information that satisfy the standards adopted by Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC). This is to encourage the general public access to large-scale mapping products and geographic information downloads produced by the Department of the Environment, and easily meet interoperability requirements.
