Geoportal How to

The Geoportal tool is placed on the BioReg platform. It represents 6 maps and 7 overlays.

1.1 MAPS
At the right side of the screen the user can see a large section, named Bioreg Geoportal. This is the section where the user can display and hide different maps and overlays using the buttons below. The 6 maps are placed in 3 rows providing information about 3 topics – Wood waste (theoretical potential and density), Demolition wood (theoretical potential and density), and Wood industry (theoretical potential and density). In order to change maps between “theoretical potential” and “density” for each of the three labels (Wood waste, Demolition wood, Wood industry) the user should click on the respective buttons: “theoretical” and “density”. The three labels themselves (Wood waste, Demolition wood, Wood industry) are not active buttons.
The Overlays section has 7 active buttons, each of them visualize the respective overlay independently (first click – show, second click – hide). Each overlay visualizes different establishments depending on their activities (wood waste management, waste energy plants, technology providers, research institutions, panel producers, biomass power plants, associated members).
At left bottom side of the screen is the “Legend” section. In this section you can monitor different pieces of information about the map currently loaded.
At the very bottom of the screen there is a section called “Map description”, which represents full description about each of the three categories of maps (Wood waste, Demolition wood, Wood industry). The “map description” and the “legend” information are automatically loaded and changed by changing the geoportal maps.
Hold the cursor on the map region and you will see a pop up with information about the region.  Hold the cursor on a point when an overlay is active and you will see information about the entity this point represents.
