The United Nations Environment Programme / GRID-Arendal
has a nextensive library of maps produced in the past 15 years. Maps are browseable via region or environment-related themes. Also included are some small scale topographic maps. Currently most maps are available in jpeg format but scaleable pdf versions are to be released later this year. Also included are a number of interactive maps, including an Arctic Environmental Atlas
and a Baltic Environmental Atlas
, both which seem to employ ArcIMS.
A short review of some of the maps indicate high cartographic standards. A site worth visiting and exploring on a regular basis.
