In Germany the development of a marine data infrastructure currently takes place with the aim to integrate existing technical developments as well as merging information concerning the fields coastal engineering, hydrography and surveying, protection of the marine environment, maritime conservation, regional planning and coastal research. This undertaking is embedded in a series of regulations and developments on many administrative levels from which specifications and courses of action derive. To set up a conceptual framework for this marine data infrastructure in Germany (abbreviated MDI-DE) scientists at the Professorship for Geodesy and Geoinformatics at Rostock University are building a reference model, developing models to support common workflows in marine applications and evaluating meta-information systems and marine spatial infrastructures of other countries.
Evaluating how other countries built their marine spatial infrastructures is of main importance, to learn where obstacles are and errors are likely to occur. To be able to look at other initiatives from a neutral point of view it is necessary to construct a framework for the evaluation of marine spatial data infrastructures. Spatial data infrastructure assessment approaches were used as bases and were expanded to meet the requirements of the marine domain. As international case-studies this paper will look at Canada’s Marine Geospatial Data Infrastructure (MGDI), COINAtlantic and GeoPortal as well as on Australia’s AMSIS and IMOS Ocean Portal.
