The GENASIS (Global ENvironmental ASsessment Information System) complex multi-matrix data browser has been developed to view environmental data collected within different monitoring projects, institutions, and matrices. The GENASIS database currently contains data from 40 projects in 97 countries of 5 continents, with 458 compounds represented in more than 820,000 records collected over 20+ years of continuous monitoring. Monitored compounds cover most of these listed in the Annexes to the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants.

Data of the Research Centre for Toxic Compounds in the Environment (RECETOX) count for the vast majority of the database with Košetice EMEP station and MONET networks being the most significant data sources. In addition, short-term and screening projects are also included in the database. Furthermore, the browser also allows visualization of data provided from partner institutions as follows:
Spatial Distribution map displays with sampling sites around the world and allows selection of fewer sites for subsequent analyses. Map can be scaled down or up by using the zooming tool. The sites are stratified by site type and UNEP region. This map is interlinked with the data selection module and displays only those sampling sites included in the selection.
This is overview of data in a selected data set.
Summary Statistics chart presents interval of measured concentrations for a compound in a given matrix in individual years. The horizontal box-whisker chart shows a central point (median, mean, geometric mean) and its variability (minium and maximum, standard deviations, percentiles) for a set of sampling sites in individual years.
