The use of information and communication technology to disseminate geographic information from the Northern Vosges Regional Park territorial observatory

Abstract : The Northern Vosges, northern part of the North-East French Massive, is registered as a Regional Park since 1975. To stimulate, manage and enhance this rural area, a management organization was formed: the SYCOPARC. Within this organization the Territorial Observatory has the goal to form a precise as well as a global knowledge about the Park. To do so, the work relays on a thorough desktop GIS solution and recently on the ArcGIS Server solution that takes over ArcIMS. These software servers can allow the use and sharing of geographic information. The Territorial Observatory develops many of the emblematic data that are necessary from a strategic point of view to make public. In this respect, interactive mapping and an interface allowing the download of data are being put on the internet, this precise methodology being explained in the present paper. The objective is to select, prepare and publish data for the general public so that it will convey a clear geographic information as well as consistency to the strategies of SYCOPARC. Thus, the former interactive mapping application is updated. The dissemination of geographic information takes place in two stages: the valorizing of data, conducted as part of an interactive mapping application and the sharing of it, under the form of an interface for GIS data download. The operational implementation of this project involves three successive phases in chronological order: The creation of the application on desktop software (ArcGIS Desktop) The publication of the draft created through a map server (ArcGIS Server) The use of interactive mapping and the direct download of data (website of the Nature Park)
