In spring 2020 the project Ny-Ålesund GIS was launched. The end product is a brand new layer in the Svalbardkartet GIS map containing information about research instruments, installations and fields sites in and around Ny-Ålesund.
Currently the database more that 550 objects, and the research community in Ny-Ålesund is currently working on expanding this.

Svalbardkartet is an interactive themed atlas of Svalbard supplemented with a rich dataset of environmental data layered on top of a detailed topographic base-map. All information in Svalbardkartet is open to all.
Ny-Ålesund Research Objects
You can find information about the Ny-Ålesund research objects in a separate layer in Svalbardkartet.
Adding of modifying information about the research objects in Svalbardkartet must be done through the spesific ARC-GIS online user-interface. The interface part of the system requires a log-in, and each NySMAC member has one.
