About this site


This website was commissioned by LINZ and developed by NIWA, in conjunction with SilverStripe.

NIWA contracted the Wellington based web development company, SilverStripe, to design and build the portal to NIWA's specifications. SilverStripe used their own Open Source CMS, also called SilverStripe to build the portal. The web mapping client within the portal was developed specifically for the portal, integrating OpenLayers with the SilverStripe CMS as a web mapping module, and will be available as a standard module within the CMS. Atlas and ArcServer, licensed to NIWA, are the two proprietary applications used. Most of the Open Source components are supported by the Open Source Geospatial Foundation, http://www.osgeo.org.

The software applications used to build the portal include:
