The project of Encyclopaedic Atlas of the Small Mediterranean Islands is born in 2012, during a meeting of the Research and Management Committee of the PIM Initiative, an international programme aimed at promoting and supporting the management of Mediterranean island micro-territories.
The objective of this project is to provide everyone with all the knowledge available on these small territories, dealing with their evolution, their heritage (natural, historical, cultural…) and their management facing the pressures that are exerted there. In the long term, this bulk of information may allow to build a strategy for the conservation of islands and islets to be carried out by the countries of the Mediterranean basin with the support of the PIM Initiative.
After several years of field work, feedbacks and multidisciplinary collaborations, this project is now materialized through this Atlas platform, created to share the different sheets produced at different scales (sub-basin, cluster, island) throughout the Western Mediterranean countries.
HOW TO USE THE MAP ?
FROM THE MAP
Click on the marker to access information on an island, or on the geographical area to access information on the selected cluster or sub-basin. Only sub-basins coloured in XX, clusters coloured in XXX , and islands identified by the Atlas logo have an available sheet.
FROM THE ICON IN THE TOP LEFT CORNER
Clicking on the icon will bring up the map navigation menu. Clicking on the names of sub-basins, clusters or islands will bring up an information window on the selected item. You will then find the link to the corresponding Atlas sheet.
FROM THE ICON IN THE TOP RIGHT CORNER
Clicking on the icon will take you to the map search engine (magnifying glass).
For an easier map reading, you will find on the “Explore the Atlas” page three individual maps: a sub-basin map, a cluster map and an island map.
