Abstract

The objective of the environmental data exchange network for inland water (EDEN-IW) project is to make existing distributed environmental data available to citizens and other users through an intelligent interface acting as a one-stop shop. The users, who may also be public authorities (for instance environmental regulatory agencies) and the public, will be able to address their needs for inland water data through one common interface. This will be independent of physical or logical location of the databases, the database language used, or of the specific nomenclature used in a specific database, and without knowing which database or databases contain the relevant information, by data mining the most complete set of information sources.
