The World Heritage Online Map Platform is an upcoming online Geographic Information System (GIS) for World Heritage. This web-based platform will visualize georeferenced boundaries and buffer zones of World Heritage properties in Europe and North America on an accessible and interactive digital map.

UNESCO is currently collecting GIS data (e.g. ESRI Shapefile, OGC GML, GeoJSON) to populate the online platform, inviting States Parties to share this data for the World Heritage properties located on their territory. Providing digital geospatial data for World Heritage properties on an accessible online platform will greatly contribute to the monitoring of their state of conservation. In order to streamline the data collection, we are inviting you to fill in this online form to submit your GIS data.
