MapServer Ethiopia is a web-based open-source platform for the dissemination of geospatial data maps and information about Ethiopia. The website contains three main web apps that enable
1. mapping based on pre-produced maps,
2. desktop mapping of selected information layers, and
3. open geospatial data download.
The MapServer Ethiopia data platform and website are intended to improve mapping and spatial understanding in the context of project management, natural resources governance, humanitarian aid work, and academic education. The MapServer Ethiopia project is part of the activities of the Water and Land Resource Centre (WLRC) to improve data sharing and dissemination in support of land and water resources management. The project is funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).
