Waste Atlas of Greece
D-Waste is a consulting company which goal is to make recycling and waste management a matter for everyone and not just for specialists and managers. To this end, it works around the world, focusing on developing local and international communities, developing tools that bring the necessary know-how and information into the hands of all concerned, quickly and easily, with mobile applications and web tools.
The Greek Waste Atlas is a national adaptation of the World Waste Atlas (http://atlas.d-waste.com) developed by D-Waste in collaboration with international organizations ISWA (International Solid Waste Association), GIZ (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit, GmbH), WTERT (Waste-to-Energy Research and Technology Council), SWEEPNET (Regional Solid Waste Exchange of Information and Expertise Network), SWAPI (Solid Waste in Asia & the Pacific Islands) and The University of Leeds University.
This is a handy, interactive web application that contains all the information on solid waste management in the country. The application depicts technical, environmental and socio-economic data and allows the display of information on interactive maps as well as benchmarking, statistical processing and generating reports and graphs in an easy and fast way, depending on the permissions of each user.
The information presented in the application includes realistic operational data of solid waste management bodies, data from approved Regional Waste Management Plans, data from the Hellenic Statistical Authority (ELSTAT) and available waste management infrastructure licensing data. The updating of the application details will be carried out under the responsibility of the Solid Waste Management Network.
The project was implemented by D-Waste on behalf of the Solid Waste Management Network, while the application was developed by GEOSPATIAL ENABLING TECHNOLOGIES (GET).
