Opening the online maps

The BGIS website consists of two parts - pages of textual information and online maps.

The text pages

The online maps



You can access the online maps via the BGIS website at http://BGIS.SANBI.org.

To open the online maps choose the maps link on the top navigation bar of the BGIS website.

This will bring you to a page with a user agreement. If you agree with the statement click "Agree".

You will be asked to fill in a few simple details for stats purposes. When you click Proceed to Maps and the BGIS Online Maps will open in a popup window. You will only be asked to enter your details once, the next time you access the maps the window will pop up directly after you have agreed to the users agreement.

PLEASE NOTE You must disable your popup blocker in order to view the maps!

Note you can also go directly to many of the maps from the text information on the BGIS website (See Choosing a map for an example).
