Smart Atlas is developed by MaREI. It is being deployed and used by SPINCAM, Irish Coast Guard and ODINAFRICA partners. Smart Atlas is an “atlas in a box” that is easy to deploy and customise. It allows users to publish maps on the web in an easy way. Smart Atlas relies on UMN MapServer’s MapScript as a server side. It has a web graphical user interface developed using GeoExt and ExtJS

Smart Atlas is a web GIS that allows access to, and visualisation of data and metadata. It can be connected to an OGC catalogue service (CSW 2.0.2) that supports the Dublin Core [ISO03] and ISO-19139 metadata standards (e.g. GeoNetwork). It relies on UMN MapServer to render maps


  • Mapping interface with common map controls (zoom, pan, feature information, distance measuring, navigation to an area of interest, print, etc.)
  • A variety of base maps (ESRI maps, Google maps, and Open Street Map)
  • Data browsing by a hierarchy of categories
  • Simple and advanced data search
  • Layer information (summary and full metadata and legends)
  • Data download - provided that download links are provided as part of metadata delivery information according to the GeoNetwork protocol naming convention
