CommonSensing Open Portal

The CommonSensing Project has delivered many datasets and services to our users in Fiji, Vanuatu and the Solomon Islands. Login details are required to access most of the services listed below.

The Fiji ESRI Portal is based on ESRI ArcGIS Enterprise technology and comprises a comprehensive data catalog, many out-of-the-box tools and a number of bespoke Apps. Please note, that accessing the Fiji Portal requires ESRI login credentials which are obtainable from the Fiji Ministry of Lands and Mineral Resources.

The Solomon Islands Web GIS is based on open-source software applications including TerriaJS Geoserver, THREDDS and Postgres / PostGIS. This Web GIS allows users to discover, view and download CommonSensing datasets and relevant datasets from other open data sources. Users can also upload their own national or regional datasets in their session to help with their disaster resilience work.

The Vanuatu Web GIS is based on open-source software applications including TerriaJS Geoserver, THREDDS and Postgres / PostGIS. This Web GIS allows users to discover, view and download CommonSensing datasets and relevant datasets from other open data sources. Users can also upload their own national or regional datasets in their session to help with their disaster resilience work.

A simple web application that allows users to explore and download data from our CommonSensing Data Cube. Our Data Cube is based on open-source Open Data Cube technology.

Using this service, technical users can launch on-demand queries of our CommonSensing Data Cube to produce derived Data Products to help with their disaster resilience work. The user needs to select the required Data Product, their Area-Of-Interest and the relevant input parameters. Once submitted, our Data Cube will then produce the required Data Product and make it available to the user via a download link.

The CommonSensing Decision Support System (DSS) for enhanced risk reduction was designed as a service for decision-makers to help inform them on disaster risk, providing actionable information to increase resilience to climate change. This system also signposts users to interactive web maps and the technical backstopping activities undertaken in Fiji, Vanuatu and Solomon Islands to aid with disaster risk reduction.

The CommonSensing Knowledge Hub is a repository of the knowledge and documentation developed during the Project. Many training resources are available, such as the Met e-Learning, a course created to support climate officers and those working in sectors that are required to use climate information. The Hub is a live service and new content is added as it becomes available.
