In order to make access to spatially referenced environmental data easier, the Environmental Information System of Hamburg (HUIS) changes its conception from a collection of almost non connected components to a network of services which allow the definition of different views on distributed data. A complete redesign of the HUIS makes possible that on the one hand advanced modern web-technologies could be employed and on the other hand nothing new was developed as part of the system that did not already exist. For this reason, efforts were made to use standardized OpenGIS web-enabled Services in order to build a distributed environmental data infrastructure. This publication will describe the concept of the system, its historical developments and the results of the prototype stage.
