Data Warehouse for Danube Waterway

The projects objectives were:
1. To provide a common and harmonised implementation of European and international standards on the Danube waterway and recommendations for inland navigation.
2. To network national geographic information systems and to ensure an efficient exchange of electronic data between responsible waterway authorities.
3. To create digital navigation charts for the Danube river in compliance with the European inland ECDIS standard.
4. To set up an infrastructure to improve the accuracy of satellite based positioning systems, according to current international standards.
D4D started with the creation of digital charts and set-up of the infrastructure of differential positioning systems to ensure implementation of River Information Services (RIS). Then, all waterway relative data was stored in a distributed database (data warehouse) and made available to the participating countries. The common database served as a basis for a number of additional applications.
