Abstract

In Germany, public environmental data are in the responsibility of several different public organisations and institutions. The German Environmental Information Portal PortalU® (www.portalu.de) is a web service operated by the environmental administrations to make digital environmental information easier accessible, usable and exploitable for both citizens and environmental experts. The fruitful long-time co-operation between the environmental administrations is an example for a well working organisational structure within a federal state. In this chapter the PortalU technology and the content of the portal are presented. Due to the current discussion referring to INSPIRE, a special focus is set on publishing INSPIRE conform metadata.
