Digital information to reduce pressure on protected areas

Digitize the Planet e. V. supports protected area administrations in the digital communication of rules and regulations. This enables digital and timely visitor guidance.


Digitize the Planet e. V. offers protected areas the opportunity to digitize rules and regulations. This makes them accessible to a broad user group.

Currently, the process is still supported manually, which means that protected areas send their information to Digitize the Planet as excel files. In spring 2022, the first users will be able to enter their data directly in a standardized interface. The digitized and georeferenced standards will then be available as Open Data.

Digitize the Planet acts as an interface to tour portals and platforms. The data will be distributed as widely as possible. The aim is to inform outdoor enthusiasts in a timely manner about protected areas and applicable standards. This way visitors can be guided and prepared accordingly throughout the planning process.
