Title(s):Main Title: The TR32 project database - TR32DB
Description(s):Abstract: In this contribution, we introduce the centralized data management system (TR32DB) of the DFG funded research project Transregional Collaborative Research Centre 32 (TR32) “Patterns in Soil-Vegetation-Atmosphere Systems: Monitoring, Modelling, and Data Assimilation”. The TR32 is a joint project between the Universities of Aachen, Bonn, Cologne, and the Research Centre Jülich. The research partners are from the fields of soil and plant science, hydrology, meteorology, geophysics, geography, remote sensing, and mathematics. They work in 13 project sections on exchange processes between the soil, vegetation, and the adjacent atmospheric boundary layer (SVA). The TR32 study area is defined by the catchment of the river Rur situated in western Germany, parts of the Netherlands, and Belgium. The TR32DB system is developed following the guidelines of the DFG (e.g. ‘Good Scientific Practice’, bulletin 60.06) to enable a centralized, sustainable storage and to offer exchange of the TR32 data for all project participants. Due to the various disciplines in the TR32, the TR32DB has to handle a huge amount of various research data from different research fields. Besides collected research data (including measured and modelled data), reports, presentations, publications, and pictures provided by the TR32 participants, also purchased geodata from various institutions are considered. In addition, a TR32 metadata management system was developed. The design of the TR32DB is a combination of file management, database, and web-interface including Web-GIS functionalities. The TR32DB is physically stored at the Regional Computing Centre Cologne and accessible online (www.tr32db.uni-koeln.de). The structure is developed according to recent standards and principles (e.g. from OGC, ISO and W3C). Programming standards and languages like JavaScript, PHP, HTML, CSS, and SQL are used to develop and customize the interaction between databases, web-interface, and Web-GIS. Moreover, metadata standards like Dublin Core and INSPIRE are considered, as well as DOI guidelines. The TR32DB offers several functionalities like management, sustainable storage and backup, visualization, exchange, and provision of TR32 data. Furthermore, the linkage of TR32 data with adequate and TR32 specific metadata is provided. All features are accessible online, e.g. representation and search of TR32 data via the TR32DB web-interface. Some functions are only available for authorized users like download of TR32 data, entry and modification of corresponding metadata, application of TR32-DOIs, temporary download of purchased and processed geodata, as well as visualization of geodata in a Web-GIS.
