Abstract

The Assessment of African Protected Areas web site is an online information system based on satellite technology allowing decision makers to assess the state of 741 protected areas in Africa and to prioritize them according to biodiversity values and threats when allocating funds. The current architecture of the system and the large variety of data types and sources involved here render uneasy the maintenance and potential developments of the web site. Future improvements and innovations of the system depend thus largely on its evolution towards an interoperable web service able to exchange a large variety of data coming from different sources. We discuss here how the current system can become an element of the Shared Environmental Information System (SEIS) by adopting a Service Oriented Architecture with model servers that can provide analysis tools for ecological forecasting as proposed in Model Web.
