The GEO Data Portal is the authoritative source for data sets used by UNEP and its partners in the Global Environment Outlook (GEO) report and other integrated environment assessments. Its online database holds more than 450 different variables,as national, subregional, regional and global statistics or asgeospatial data sets (maps), covering themes like Freshwater, Population, Forests, Emissions, Climate, Disasters, Health and GDP. Display them on-the-fly as maps, graphs, data tables or download the data in different formats.



The (original, no-longer-active) Aboriginal Mapping Network Usermap was created using WorldKit. You can use the same satellite imagery as a Web Map Service in ArcMap, or download the datasets.
