Summary
Abstract: SERVIR is a Regional Monitoring and Visualization System for Mesoamerica that intensively utilizes satellite imagery and other data sources for environmental management and disaster support.

SERVIR can be used by scientists, educators, and policy makers to monitor and forecast ecological changes, respond to disasters such as forest fires, tropical storms, floods, drought, and volcanic eruptions. SERVIR also provides user-friendly, interactive tools that geared towards students and the general public.

The SERVIR webpage provides free and open access to:

1. Satellite and other spatial data sets via MesoStor
2. Interactive online maps
3. Thematic decision support tools, and
4. 3-D interactive visualizations

Thematic decision support areas currently available on the SERVIR webpage include: fire detection, red tide detection, and climate change. Planned products include decision support tools for short term weather prediction, coastal zone management, land cover and land use change, terrestrial carbon stocks monitoring, water resources, and disaster management. The computational architecture of SERVIR also hosts data from regional initiatives such as the Mesoamerican Environmental Information System (SIAM), the Inter-American Biodiversity Information Network (IABIN), and the United Nations Environmental Programme's Global Resource Information Database (UNEP-GRID) for Latin America and the Caribbean.

SERVIR will also provide added value to the ongoing education and training activities at CATHALAC, serving the evolving capacity building demands from universities, project developers, private sector, NGO's and interested professionals who want to acquire, or update their skills.
