It is with great pleasure that I am welcoming you to our new interactive web platform, a useful tool for the exchange of valuable information and knowledge; aiming at strengthening cooperation in the wider Black Sea area.
This new digital platform, designed by a professional web designer, emphasizes to the ease of use for all the guests and users. Guest visitors will be able to be informed about the Centre, our aims, goals, activities, projects, books and publications as well as future events. In addition, visitors will also be able to register on-line and gain access to a “members only” content section, create a users profile, upload articles, post comments on existing ones, access a discussion forum and an on-line document repository.
Furthermore, the ICBSS Web GIS is a brand new interactive tool with main goal to diffuse statistical and indicator data for the countries of the Black Sea via the internet, and present them mainly as maps. Under these terms the expected audience should be familiar with the basic mapping functionalities and terminology, but special care is taken in order to present an application interface that is easily used by both experts and non-experts. Please keep in mind that the site is still on a trial base and some parts are under construction.
