The lack of baseline data and sparse information on coral reef ecosystems to inform policies to arrest degradation is a key impediment to coral reef management in the Maldives. As a result, the Government of Maldives initiated the Wetlands Conservation and Coral Reef Monitoring for Adaptation to Climate Change (WCCM) project to develop a national monitoring and management program for coral reefs. To support data entry and management, in addition to decision support, the CoralDatabase web-enabled database system was developed.

Lim Geomatics designed and implemented CoralDatabase for the Government of Maldives using various open source technologies (Java, Play, MySQL) and Google Maps with the flexibility to interface with the Maldives National GIS, which was architected, designed and implemented previously by Lim Geomatics using Esri ArcGIS Server technology.
