Wetlands Intl logo Ramsar logoThe Ramsar Wetlands Data Gateway provides access to spatial and tabular data relevant to Wetlands of International Importance listed under the auspices of the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands (established in Ramsar, Iran, in 1971). The Gateway seeks to enhance the accessibility and utility of data on Ramsar sites by facilitating online access, sophisticated queries, and spatial data integration. The Gateway has been developed by CIESIN in collaboration with the Ramsar Bureau and Wetlands International. The Gateway provides access to data on 1,198 Ramsar sites designated as of August 30, 2002. Please visit the Ramsar Bureau website for the most recent official listing of Ramsar sites.
