Description

Metadata is essential in retrieving information about the environment located at differentlydistributed organisational units of governmental administration. The population of the meta-informationsystem may be done based either on a centralised concept (e.g. with support of external interviewers) or on anon-centralised concept requiring a software tool accessible at each desktop computer where the dataholdercan enter the data directly. Often the implementation of such a tool is linked with a high effort in installationand training, especially if hundreds of clients have to be served. To overcome these disadvantages wedeveloped a software tool based on MS Outlook supporting the non-centralised maintenance concept. Thesoftware tool is used in connection with the environmental data catalogue (Umweltdatenkatalog, abbr. UDK)developed by German and Austrian authorities.
