GAEZ - Global Agro-Ecological Zones online!


On 12.12.12, FAO launched Beta Release One of its new unified data platform, with the catchphrase “the foundation for uniting our data”.

This innovative, web-based platform is the first of its kind in FAO to provide users with a single access point to data, pictures, documents and maps on nutrition, food and agriculture gathered from databases across the Organization.

GAEZ is one of the FAO flagship datasets featured in the new platform, supplying thousands of geospatial and tabular products, maps and metadata.

While this foundation release includes only a part of the products currently available in FAO, increasing amounts of data will continue to be linked, with the aim of eventually attaining data harmonization throughout the Organization.
