Abstract: This paper introduces the CRC/TR32 database (TR32DB), a research data management system developed within the multidisciplinary research project Collaborative Research Centre/Transregio 32 (CRC/TR32) funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). The aim of the TR32DB is to support collative research within the whole project by providing data storage, backup, archive, documentation, publication and also sharing services. The entire system is self-developed according to the requirements of the funding agency, the user and project demands, as well as according to recent principles and standards. The TR32DB system architecture is basically a combination of data storage (file management), database and web-interface. In addition, the TR32DB Metadata Schema was designed and implemented to describe all project data with accurate metadata. A user-friendly multi-level approach was chosen to cover the requirements of all data stored in the TR32DB with appropriate metadata.

Abstract: The 2nd Data Management Workshop was held at the University of Cologne in November 2014. It was organized within the research data management activities of two large interdisciplinary research projects both funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). Both projects actively supported the workshop. The Collaborative Research Centre/Transregio 32 ‘Patterns in Soil-Vegetation-Atmosphere Systems: Monitoring, Modelling and Data Assimilation’ involves scientist from the fields of meteorology, hydrology, geography, geophysics, soil sciences and mathematics. The CRC806 ‘Our Way to Europe: Culture-Environment Interaction and Human Mobility in the Late Quaternary’ integrates scientists from the disciplines of prehistoric archaeology, geology, geography, geophysics and soil sciences. Organizing research data management of such diverse disciplines which are distributed over several universities and research centers faces several problems and challenges. Consequently, the main focus of the 2nd Data Management Workshop was to discuss solutions and approaches for interdisciplinary and disciplinary data management with other colleagues and experts of the field. The publication of the Special Issue on ‘Research Data Management’ of the ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information (ISSN 2220-9964) emerged in the context of this workshop.

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: Terrestrial laser scanning provides highly accurate and dense 3D measurements of an object. This technology leads to several applications, for example in topographic surveys, forestry, and as-built documentation. Few developments exist in the area of agriculture and precision farming. In this contribution, multi-temporal 3D terrestrial laser scanning was applied for field crop modelling. The time-of-flight laser scanner Riegl LMS-Z420i was used three to five times per year to estimate plant height distribution of the field crops winter wheat, spring barley, and sugar beet. In 2008 and 2009, the area under investigation was a single field. As a further development, data from plots with different crop varieties of barley and sugar beet were analysed in 2010. As a result, within-field variability was detected by using crop surface models (CSM) and crop volume models (CVM). Single plants were successfully detected. The results will be compared with additional data in the future.

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.
