Kohlus, J., Reimers, H.-C.. Das Projekt MDI-DE - Marine Daten-Infrastruktur in Deutschland. In: Schwarzer, K., Schrottke, K., Stattegger, K. (eds.). From Brazil to Thailand - New Results in Coastal Research. Coastline Reports (16), pp. 115-126. EUCC - Die Küsten Union Deutschland e.V., Rostock, 2010.


The increasing pressure on the intensively used coastal and marine areas demands a thematic cross-analysis of all required data for the conservation of habitats, their functioning and protection. Additional needs for a common marine data infrastructure are the increasing complexity of current questions targeting anthropogenic changes in marine ecosystems, global change and the resulting challenges for coastal protection. Not least the reporting obligations for the main European directives in the marine area, as for the EU Water Framework Directive, the Flora-Fauna-Habitat Directive and in particular the Marine Strategy Framework Directive, recently entered into force, strongly require a certain data management.

At the same time data of the marine monitoring according to the INSPIRE Directive (Infrastructure for Spatial Information in Europe) should be provided for a common use. This requires an infrastructure and appropriate software tools, which join the technical capabilities with the requirements of EU directives.

Important networking components have already been developed within the North- and Baltic Sea Coastal Information System (NOKIS) and also at the participating data nodes of the central government and the federal states by developing local data infrastructures. Since these do not meet all requirements, the project "MDI DE - Marine data infrastructure in Germany" will play a decisive role to support the integration of different technical infrastructures and distributed skills of experts on marine and coastal data.
