Glacier information and monitoring system

Environmental information in general, and glacier information in particular is of varying nature. Some information comes from rather basic measurements, some from very sophisticated (experimental) processing algorithms, some are collected in-situ, and some are remotely sensed to a varying degree (ground, air-borne, space-born). Measurements and derived information represent points, lines, or continuous fields in two or more dimensions, but are in general of spatial nature. Several institutions with different policies with respect to management, accessibility and technical solutions contribute to this information.

Due to this variability, the Information and Monitoring System, created in the Omega project is constructed with flexibility and distribution as major design criteria. The Omega System is therefore general enough to serve a large range of Environmental Monitoring Tasks where distribution among several actors is a primary concern.

We would describe the status of the Omega System as an operational prototype. During the project the system has proved its capability to store different types of glaciological data products, at different locations, with different types of meta data attached, and to present this as a coherent collection for the user community.
