The availability of consistent and comprehensible spatial data is fundamental for scientific research, in particular in the context of long term observation series. An adequate documentation of the data quality and its history finally enables users to work responsibly with these data.
As the research community gets closer and the sharing of data becomes more common and important a simple and intuitive access to these environmental data is a key factor in large projects. Methods of spatial information analysis allow to build and link complex process models of different scientific fields.
