Paper Abstract

The work is dedicated to the development of a regional online free GIS data access system in the Eastern Mediterranean sea. EastMedAtlas consists from the following main parts: User interface (UI), Server and Map service. The user interface provides the database's request and visualize the results on the Map, and plots the data for each requested parameter. The UI support data in ODV and netCDF formats. The EastMedAtlas operates at the base of Apache server software and includes Database (DB), php scripts for providing data exchange between the UI and the Map service at the base of Mapserver software for visualization of geo-spatial data. The EastMedAtlas DB is developed at the base of MySQL and includes free access data of the Eastern Mediterranean sea downloaded through European and international portals, such as for example the SeaDataNet, EMODNET, CMEMS, WDC and other relevant databases. The EastMedAtlas data has received a further Quality Control using the regional QC criteria adopted in SeaDataNet. At present, the EastMedAtlas DB includes metadata and data from more than 20 thousands stations in the Eastern Mediterranean sea. The EastMedAtlas online GIS system is more user friendly and less cumbersome than other oceanographic global and regional online DBs.
