Paper Abstract

The paper briefs on the improvements of the Black Sea oceanographic GIS, which is developed for the needs of the Marine Hydrophysical Institute (MHI) oceanographic database. The structure, data and the online data access technology for the existing oceanographic GIS at MHI were described in "Black Sea GIS developed in MHI" [1] and "Using GIS technology for access to coastal data" [2]. Currently, a geo-spatial database has been implemented in order to improve the Black Sea oceanographic GIS. For this purpose the PostgreSQL/PostGIS database has been used, taking the advantage of its high functionality and open source. The structure of the new Black Sea oceanographic GIS database has been developed following the SeaDataNet metadata and data standards. The new improvements include the development of scripts for data exchange between the User Interface (UI) and the PostgreSQL/PostGIS database. Furthermore, instead of the previously used Flex RIA, the HTML5 is implemented to avoid problems concerning the support of new browsers. The main functions of the UI are realized using jQuery, while the Mapserver services are realized using OpenLayers.
