NOKIS: A Metadata Information System to Support Coastal Research and Coastal Engineering

Type of Entry: Project
Website: http://nokis.baw.de/
Duration: 01/02/2001 - 30/01/2004

Within the pilot project, the basic version of a metadatabase information system for the North and Baltic Seas (NOKIS), based on a concept open to further contributions, is to be developed. Metadata – i.e. data indicating qualitiy, nature/ character and accessability of primary data – will be organised locally in a database and then integrated and offered via the internet. This way communication and exchange of data and information within the German coastal research community as well as with international experts is facilitated and intensified.
