MYANMAR - Maps from GeoNetwork  

GeoNetwork is a digital library enabling you to find and access geospatial information. It allows data providers to systematically describe both their data and distribution services. A catalogue of data and distribution services can then be

published through the internet for use by anyone looking for geospatial information and they may be able to access it from a data distribution service listed in the catalogue. On-the-fly data conversion and re-projection have made direct data access from a distribution service a viable option for those with good Internet access. By providing a catalogue for data and distribution services and facilities to exchange information with other catalogues as part of a network, GeoNetwork helps to organize and share geospatial information within and between the interoperable, spatial data infrastructures (SDIs) that many states are building.

Selected maps for Myanmar and the surrounding area are listed below.
