InGeo Information Center
Personalisierter Zugang zu Geodaten-Archiven
The InGeoForum was founded 1997 as an information and cooperation forum
to enforce the development of the geodata market in Germany. Apart from
the communication platform (e.g. there are about 3-4 annual events around
the topic of geodata and its specific technical and business-driven
aspects) InGeoForum also offers several services such as the InGeo-MIS
(metadata information system).
In tradition to previous papers presented at the AKHU workshop series,
this paper describes the development of the InGeoForum and the InGeo-MIS
as a central service of the InGeo IC (InGeoForum information center).
Here, a personalized geodata portal enables users to access geodata
and geodata archives in different ways: In addition to the use of traditional
search methods such as keyword-based, spatial or temporal searches,
the portal offers application-driven access mechanisms taking into account
individual user requirements, tasks and goals. These access variants
are described in detail in the context of site planning as comprehensive
application examples addressing several issues and geodata disciplines.
