We are starting to move the CBDG Portal
Portal CBDG – http://geoportal.pgi.gov.pl has been operating since 2008. It contained, among others: websites of key PGI-NRI projects, websites of regional branches of the Institute, a discussion forum and many useful applications dedicated to geoinformation.
CBDG, of which this portal was a part, has a new website. It takes over the entire content of information about the Database, its subsystems with dedicated domain applications and the CBDG Portal functions of providing access to spatial data, including map applications. The new website is even better adapted to use it on mobile devices. For more and more people, the smartphone is the basic tool for online communication. Currently, about 30% of users connect to CBDG from mobile devices and we observe a constant upward trend in this aspect. Therefore, all emerging new versions of the application are also optimized for mobile devices.
Technological progress and changing standards open up new opportunities. Thanks to the changes, users have the possibility of better access to geological data. Sometimes modernization requires a thorough change of technology. This is why we are transferring the content of the CBDG Portal. The pages still left on the portal will also be gradually transferred to more modern IT platforms.
