Sample Reference: GREAT-ER II - Geography-referenced Regional Exposure Assessment Tool for European Rivers
GREAT-ER is a simulation system for modeling the environmental fate of
substances in rivers with a GIS based user interface. The development
of GREAT-ER II is performed under the
CEFIC Long Range Research Initiative
(LRI) Environmental Exposure Programme.
The tender has been awarded to the consortium of Intevation GmbH
and TechniData AG, Markdorf
(Germany) in late 2001.
The project ran from April 2002 to September 2003.
Intevation is responsible for the model and analysis system
with two user interfaces (desktop and web-based) as well as data preprocessing.
Massively georeferenced modelling requires high computing performance.
The overall system architecture considers distributing the workload on
dedicated systems: E.g. User Workstation, Database Server, Computing
Server(s). If needed all these can run on a single computer.
Independent Desktop User Interface:
Intevation has launched the Free Software Project
to realise the platform independent basis for
the desktop application.
Web based User Interface:
A user interface implemented in a web based application framework
provides access on GREAT-ER II without any
further installation required.
Flexible Model System:
The GREAT-ER model concept has proven its relevance and applicability
over the last years. GREAT-ER II now realises a framework to exchange
the current models and to extend GREAT-ER to new compartments in
