Completed Projects

LakeBase: Database Infrastructure for Long-Term Data of German Lakes
In this collaborative project coordinated by the IGB, the Leibniz-institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries, we plan to develop a database infrastructure for long-term data of lakes. We aim to provide interoperability of LakeBase with international databases, like LTER North Temperate Lake Database and other collections of ecological time series. The challenge will be to achieve interoperability without limiting the data owners' autonomy. The Heinz-Nixdorf-Chair for Distributed Information Systems at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena is responsible for the development of an ontology-based common vocabulary and meta data standards to provide semantic search capabilities and meta data annotation assistance.
