Spatial viewers

The Observatory is an information platform on the Upper Niger Basin and Inner Niger Delta. Available spatial data are presented in three interactive viewers with different layers: - Hydrology and landuse - Hydrology and protected areas - Ecosystems and biodiversity

Hydrology and land use 

This viewer contains the basic spatial context of the Upper Niger Basin and Inner Niger Delta, with indication of tributaries and toponyms, catchments, water bodies and the maximal flood extent in the Inner Niger Delta. Also existing and planned dams are indicated, including the reservoir which comes into existence with the realisation of the Fomi / Moussako dam in Guinea. The hydrological  context is combined with spatial data on existing and planned irrigation zones in the basin. Further information and explanation can be found in the Section Hydrology.

 

Hydrology and protected areas

This viewer contains the basic spatial hydrological context of the Upper Niger Basin and Inner Niger Delta. In addition the protected areas are indicated as far as delineations are spatially clear and available. Note the spatial delineation of Ramsar sites in the Upper Niger Basin is not yet available. Further information and explanation can be found in the Section Ecosystems and biodiversity.

 

Ecology and biodiversity

This viewer contains the basic spatial context of the Upper Niger Basin and Inner Niger Delta. In addition specific spatial information on ecosystems and biodiversity is added, mostly concerning the Inner Niger Delta in this version of the Observatory. For much of the basin spatial ecological information is lacking. Further information and explanation about the availability and quality of data can be found in the Section Ecosystems and biodiversity.
