the last 15 years the Land Use Project, formerly the Agroecological
Studies Unit, has collected some 7000 maps so that we now
have one of the best map collections at national level.
The "mapoteca" (or map library) counts on a large
collection of maps at different scales and of different
countries mainly of the tropical zone. These maps are found
registered in the database (ISIS).
The optimization of the mapoteca database as a good consultation
tool for CIAT users is one of the activities being carried
out by the personnel of the Data Capture Group. The result
of this work will be supported by delivery of the manual
of database information entries, the creation of its own
thesaurus, and the standardization of the data used in the
database. External users and internal CIAT users will benefit
from the improvements of the database in the search for
information of maps as a backup for source information required
in the different projects.
Land Use Project has collected climate data in stations
located in the tropics for over 20 years. The climate
database is one of the largest collections of climate
information in the world, and contains registrations of
more than 20,000 stations of Latin America, Asia, and
on these data, we have created climate surfaces to continental
level that permit us to give reports in the present, and
to make future predictions of climate conditions. This
information is fundamental in various research fields,
both environmental and agricultural.

projects, workshop proceedings, etc.
