Examples of interpretive maps used to manage recreation


1.    Environment Australia

Environment Australia, the Australian environment ministry is to launch a major initiative over the coming year improving the use of interpretative maps for the transfer of environmental information. This will be achieved by an investment of $3.2 million for the accelerated development of the Australian coastal atlas: an interactive electronic internet service containing information on the coastal and marine environment.


2.    World Resources Institute

In 1998 the World Resources Institute produced a map-based indicator of threats to the world’s coral reefs. This provides the first map based global analysis of the condition of coral reefs and makes a significant advance in understanding and communicating the condition of coral reefs.
