Building a Mountain Knowledge Hub in the Hindu Kush-Himalaya region
My presentation is devoted to the management of the Mountain Knowledge management focusing on the Mountain GeoPortal (http://menris.icimod.org) framework which was formally launched on the occasion of World Environment Day 2006 by the MENRIS Division of the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development, ICIMOD to share GIS/RS related environment and natural resources information. This is a major step towards fulfilling the long-term goal of establishing a regional and national Geographic Information Infrastructure (GII) in the region. In view of this, Spatial Metadata Management System (SMMS – ISO 19115) to handle spatial metadata has been linked with the GeoPortal system, but SMMS does not have the knowledge handling capabilities required to enhance knowledge management aspect of thematic areas of the region.
