IPIECA is pleased to announce the re-launch of the Marine Geospatial Bibliography (MGB). This free knowledge sharing platform, developed by the IPIECA-IOGP Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services Working Group (BESWG), centralises reports, papers and environmental research relevant to oil and gas activities in marine environments. Containing over 10,000 resources, the MGB makes such information easy to find, search and summarise, and each resource is geospatially referenced.
Drawing on feedback received from IPIECA members since the MGB’s initial 2013 launch, and working with Island GIS, IPIECA has upgraded the MGB for 2015. Key improvements include:
Technical updates, including integration of Google Maps and Maps Engine
Sharpened design and navigation functions
Increased accuracy of document locations
Easier content uploading for registered users
These enhancements will allow the MGB to continue to expand as further research and resources become available. We encourage you to submit relevant resources to the MGB, as well as your colleagues and extended network.
IPIECA will be running a webinar later this year (date to be confirmed), which will provide an opportunity for participants to learn more about the MGB. Examples of how it has been used will also be included in the webinar. Please register your interest via the Survey Monkey form.
