Abstract: From 29th - 30th of October, 2009, the 'Data Management Workshop' was held at the University of Cologne, Germany. This workshop was actively supported by two research projects. The CRC/TR32 'Patterns in Soil-Vegetation-Atmosphere-Systems: Monitoring, Modelling, and Data Assimilation' as well as the CRC 806 'Our way to Europe: Culture-Environment Interaction and Human Mobility in the Later Quaternary', both Collaborative Research Centres of the German Research Foundation (DFG). In addition the workshop was co-organized by the Working Group 5 'Methods for Change Detection and Process Modelling' within the Commission VII 'Thematic Processing, Modelling and Analysis or Remotely Sensed Data' of the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS). Since many different scientific communities are facing similar problems in data handling, the aim of the workshop was to bring together a variety of scientific disciplines, which are sometimes recognised as being quite incompatible with one other (e.g. computer sciences, social sciences, geography, physics, pre-history, geoinformatics, archaeology, geosciences, meteorology, and biology). Moreover, the goal was to take into account the perspective of the funding bodies, in our case the DFG. The workshop was based on 11 invited talks and unusual long coffee breaks, parallel to poster sessions to encourage and support discussion. The diverse program attracted nearly 30 poster presentations and approximately 80 participants. The papers and abstracts of the workshop are summarized in the workshop proceedings.

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.

Abstract: The data management concept of the CRC/TR 32 'SVA-Patterns' (Curdt et al. 2008, 2010) offers a perfect tool to store and manage the data of an interdisciplinary research project. The focus here is on data management of soil (S), vegetation (V) and atmosphere (A) data for SVA-modelling purpose for a distinct watershed, the Rur-Catchment in Western Germany. The presented paper reflects the possibility and the adapting steps to transfer the concept to another interdisciplinary project. However, the technical transfer of the framework of the database is evident but the system needs to be adapted to the requirements of the benefit project. The Collaborative Research Centre (CRC) 806 'Our Way to Europe' performs a totally different investigation question and area, to capture the major intercontinental and transcontinental events of dispersal of modern man from Africa to central Europe. Therefore, other data formats and data amount occurs and other demands on the data management system are made. The paper identifies three spheres of action to adapt the concept to the CRC 806. (i) The integration of external databases to afford both, the transfer of data to other data management systems and to provide an interface to allow requests of external databases. (ii) The visualization of 3D-data in a web mapping application. (iii) The possibility for external and internal users to use geoprocessing tools to perform analysis based on the geodata in a web mapping application.

Abstract: Centralized storage and exchange of data is a key issue of interdisciplinary research projects particularly if they focus on environmental field studies and regional modelling. Furthermore, the overall success of such projects depends on a well organized data management and data exchange between all involved disciplines. This includes the organization of data, the implementation of a database and the maintenance of such a system for intensive data exchange between the project sections. This paper presents the implementation of a centralized data management system for the Transregional Collaborative Research Centre 32: 'Patterns in Soil-Vegetation-Atmosphere Systems: Monitoring, Modelling, and Data Assimilation' funded by the German Research Foundation. The design is a combination of file management, database, and online-interface including web mapping functionalities.
