GeoData@Polimi - A new way to search cartography

TeDOC has developed a geoportal for the geographical search of cartographic materials and the download of digital ones. GeoData@Polimi allows you to zoom in on the area of interest (or to enter the location or address name) and view, as in a core drill, the "stratigraphy" of the cartographic documents representing that portion of the region. Subsequently, you can select the materials to be downloaded.

Geodata@Polimi is based on the open source software OpenGeoportal (OGP) developed by Tufts University in collaboration with Harvard and MIT. Many other US universities adhere to this project and its development. Politecnico di Milano is the first European partner of this Federation.
