SOIA, the System for the Observation and Information on the Alps, is a support for policy development and for the implementation of existing priorities set out in the Alpine Convention and its protocols. Its aim is to optimize communication on research and observation activities and spread the relevant results. One basic activity of the SOIA is the regular elaboration of the Report on the State of the Alps (RSA).
One of the most relevant activities within the SOIA is the Alpine Convention Atlas, which enables the management, visualisation and dissemination of Alpine-wide data collected in the scope of the Alpine Convention's activities.
The Atlas focuses primarily on geospatial information (layers and maps) but it also includes documents, datasets and much more. Browse the Atlas by category to find out more about the Alps and the Alpine Convention – you can even create and upload your own maps! Click here to begin
