dc.description.abstractSoil monitoring programmes in Germany are widely spread by location, scope of observation, funding and temporal extent. Citizens as well as professionals have difficulties picking up the “right” data for their needs, many times not even knowing that such data exists. The Federal Environment Agency in Germany, “Umweltbundesamt (UBA)” has commissioned an R&D project to establish and operate a Metadata Portal for Soil Monitoring Data on a national level. It will make structures descriptions of all the distributed programmes accessible on the Web, and searchable by various criteria. Embedded in a set of well-balanced open standards and specifications (such as OGC, W3C, INSPIRE, GS-SOIL or the national CSW profile) the portal will be built in close cooperation with the data providers and the owners of standards or re-used software components. Finally it will become a versatile information source either by itself or as a service to be integrated by INSPIRE, PortalU, and Linked Environment Data.de
