Tools and Databases
The development of a central measure database (MDB) as a web application was initiated by state authorities of Schleswig-Holstein in order to manage all measures planned in water bodies in Schleswig-Holstein. The measure database supports the generation of river management plans and programmes of measures required by the Water Framework Directive (WFD). The first stage version of the measure database application was designed and implemented as a web application accessible by the responsible authorities and organisations via Internet. Access management with well-defined rights and roles ensures data security. Existing data about measures planned at river water bodies are interactively imported and completed by the project members. The application combines all required information and relations to meet the various evaluation and reporting demands of regional, national, and European reporting tasks. In a second stage the measure database will be extended to a universal instrument for planning, documenting, and financial purposes to support all aspects of measure management covering ideas and funding of measures as well as inspection and monitoring.
