The Legal Atlas is a free online map application tool to find legal instruments within the SADC member states. The legislation is searched by theme (e.g. Agriculture, Land Tenure, Protected Area etc.) as well as spatial location. The latter is defined by the user drawing a point, line or area on the map. All legislation on record, pertaining to the theme chosen and that intersects the selected area will be displayed in a list. The list is grouped by country and contains links to the legal instrument. While the legal documentation is not yet comprehensive it is continually being updated by the user-base.
