IMIS is a federal information system for forecast and decision support that interprets and forecasts radioactivity in the environment. Following the nuclear accident in Chernobyl a programme "Arbeitsprogramm der Bundesregierung" was established in 1986. By the end of 1986 a federal law “Strahlenschutz Vorsorge Gesetz (StrVG)” was adopted, that governs radiation protection and precaution. Besides other rules the “StrVG” contains guidelines for the installation of an information system for premonition of radioactivity in the environment. The first version of the integrated measurement and information system (IMIS) was developed between 19xx and 19xx. The system currently used will be replaced by a new IMIS which is now under development by Condat Informationssysteme AG. This contribution presents the components of the new IMIS which are used for data evaluation. An integral part is a generic selection component which provides a decoupling of the technical data model, the terminology presented to the professional end user, and the data used for visualisation. This decoupling enables the new IMIS to be extended with low efforts and offers the potential to reuse the functionality built into IMIS in future environmental information systems. This potential is not restricted to radiology. It is open to other environmental issues such as pollution or epidemic control.
