Title(s):Main Title: European Mining Database - NRW: Archive structures in a web mapping application
Description(s):Abstract: The European Mining Database for North Rhine Westphalia (EMD-NRW) has the objective to present information about the industrial heritage of mining in a GIS-based web portal. Especially in the area of North Rhine Westphalia (Germany) larger coal reserves were important for the development of the industry and particularly influenced the landscape. Concerning the increasing abandonment of these objects and the loss of the cultural industry objects, the preservation of information and the relations between these objects is important. The EMD-NRW system is capable of representing the complex, hierarchical structure of archive data and connecting this data to their geographical location. Several technologies are used to share this information in a web portal. Therefore, comprehensive information is available about every object. All objects are spatially referenced and can be visualized in a map. It is possible to connect the system to other projects by the use of open, compliant techniques. For beginners and experts information are easy to retrieve because of an intuitive design of the graphical user interface.
