Natural Earth data is a free raster and vector data package containing spatial data about countries, boundary lines, disputed areas, states, provinces, populated places, airports, ocean and sea ports and urban areas.
The original historical maps are first made into digital images by scanning and then georeferenced, which makes them display in their correct geographical spaces in Geopedia.
The Urban Atlas provides pan-European comparable land use and land cover data for large urban zones with more than 100,000 inhabitants as defined by the Urban Audit.
A recent addition are the social network Panoramio's geotagged photographs from all around the globe. Visit Geopedia and discover the world through photographs.
The Triglav National Park (TNP) is the only Slovenian national park. The park was named after Triglav, the highest mountain in the heart of the park, which is also the highest summit in Slovenia (2864 m). The origin of the name Triglav is rather uncertain. Triglav (»three-headed«) owes its name to its characteristic shape as seen from the south-east side or to the highest Slavic deity who was supposed to have its throne on the top of the mountain. The mountain is a true national symbol and is featured on the national coat of arms and the flag.
