Paper Abstract

The paper is devoted to the Black sea marine information systems. FSBSI (Marine Hydrophysical Institute of RAS) has gained a great experience in their development. A special feature of marine GISs is that in many cases the multidisciplinary and multi-component character of scientific oceanology leads to creating narrower specialized software tools to operate oceanographic data. At the same time, the accuracy of the information system representation of the processes taking place in the marine environment and in the sea – land interactive zone is determined in a considerable degree by the comprehensiveness and quality of databases in use. While creating the GISs for the Black sea, MHI uses as an information basis the Black sea database containing more than 160,000 oceanographic stations made so far since 1890. More than 80 per cent of the data have passed the quality check procedure. However, a number of GISs, for their successful operating, demand more parameters than the Black Sea database includes. This can be exemplified by the structure of the software used in the Geoinformation system of the Russian Black sea coastal zone. The database providing operation of the Specialized GIS for beach cadastral evaluation also has its peculiarities. The specific aspects of structure and functionality of the above mentioned and some other GISs created in MHI are described. The immediate objectives are identified both to create a comprehensive universal system for a wide range of researchers, with an optimized query system while addressing the integrated database, and to develop methods of spatial data sharing which allow gaining access to shared databases of the existing applied specialized systems.
