Building a web based geographic information system of the National Park "Pirin"
"Pirin" National Park Directorate
Bitmap built web based GIS (Geographic information system) for the purposes of the Pirin National Park Directorate . The system brings together an interactive map with information for the visitors and system for the employees of the directorate.
Our team of experts collected data from Ministry of Environment and Waters (MEOW) and the Directorate and created a database, which is integrated in the internet based GIS of NP “Pirin”. The functionalities for editing and visualization of the data in the web based system support the work of experts and employees of the Directorate National Park "Pirin" were implemented. Meanwhile the rich set of functions in the map server and the information, embedded in it, are good guide for every visitor of the park. Motivated to show all the useful information to the tourists even when they're in the park and have no mobile service, our team developed a free app for Andorid and iOS. The App contains all that is necessary for a good planning of every adventure – tourist routes, places for camping, landmarks and others. The app has embedded gps map with which the visitors can trace their routes and find the nearest to them landmarks. The app requires no additional mobile traffic and works entirely offline.
