The World Bank, in its quest to improve data transparency and open data platforms developed the set of the maps and data on water and energy for Central Asia
These maps and data provide a shared evidence base for planning and policy making. Spatial data visualizations can be useful for:
• Climate issues, such as temperature, precipitation, floods, real-time snow cover, and climate change scenarios;
• Environmental issues, such as water resources, erosion, land use, forest density, and biodiversity;
.• Social issues, such as population density and growth patterns, poverty, and water supply. For example, variations in water supply coverage;
• Economic issues, such as gross domestic product, energy access, infrastructure, trade, and irrigation;
The portal pulls together thousands of types of data from more than 300 web services from major institutions—UN Organizations, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), European Space Agency (ESA), World Bank, universities, and many more.
We entcourage you to use this portal and believe there is great potential benefit in having such a rich dataset available for your research!
