Welcome to EGIS

Thank you for visiting the Environment Geographic Information Systems (EGIS) Portal.

This portal provides access to baseline environmental geospatial data, printable maps, interactive mapping tools and map services to the users of geospatial technology as well as the public. Information regarding new data releases, GIS events, as well as commenting notices and timeframes could be accessed this site.

The Department of Environmental Affairs works with the Committee on Spatial Information and the broader GIS community to define the data architecture, systems, standards, policies and processes for a fully integrated and effective spatial data infrastructure for the country.

We hope you find this site useful for information about the Department of Environmental Affairs’ GIS programmes and activities.
