Scientific tools & databases

The range of work carried out at the JRC also includes the compilation of a large number of databases in addition to the development of software and modelling tools. These resources are either available to all members of the public or to specific research groups, providing assistance to scientists in carrying out their work.

The objective of this directory is to allow easy navigation through the available tools and databases, providing clear descriptions for each entry.

The tools and databases are categorised by name and acronym, but can be filtered by research area, keyword and JRC institute responsible for the coordination of the particular entry. 

  1. The ACP Map Viewer allows the user to apply layers of different data onto a map, including socioeconomic, agriculture, climate and energy data. The JRC supports other Commission services and stakeholders in the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP) Region.
