The WebGIS system
The WebGIS system is a set of "intelligent maps" that can be queried by the user to get information about what they are seeing. There are several background maps and you can switch between views to see the area under different "views":
1) Hiking map of the Province of Bergamo (1: 25,000);
2) Technical Paper of the Lombardy Region (1: 50,000 1: 10,000);
3) Orthophotos of the Lombardy Region;
The user interacts with the maps by selecting the appropriate function from the toolbar always appearing in the foreground.
For people who want to learn more about these functions, a detailed on-line help is available.
Unregistered users can see all the files on the website, and its cartography. They can print and search. They can download GPX tracks ot trails.
In addition to all the features available for unregistered users, registered users can upload their own photos and make comments to the pages published on the site.
