GIS map: Interactive web atlas for the visualization of biomass potentials in Bosnia and Herzegovina
Project

Interactive Webatlas online

Based on an updatable database, an interactive web atlas was developed for Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) to visualize the potential of 23 agricultural and forestry biomasses. This consistent information on the biogenic raw material base is a central pillar for the strategic evaluation of options for action in the bioenergy context. The results are publicly available at http://atlasbm.bhas.gov.ba/.
