The IDOD database

IDOD stands for Integrated and Dynamical Oceanographic Data management. It is the name of a project (1997-2002) financed by the Belgian federal Office for scientific, technical and cultural affairs in the frame of the first Programme for a Sustainable management of the North Sea.

The IDOD project aimed at building up a data base containing the results of the various scientific projects performed in the frame of the Programme. It lead to the IDOD Information System, made of the IDOD data base, the user interface, the spatial analysis tool and the statistical analysis tool.

The careful design of the IDOD data base makes it a versatile and robust system. The detailed overview of data characteristics and users needs which was made at the beginning of the project and updated thanks the useful comments of our Users committee allowed to implement a structure which can handle numerous types of data. The system continues therefore to be fed by data and to evolve according to the needs and the progresses of the technology.

The IDOD information system was developed in partnership with KUL-UCS and ULg-SURFACES.
