Interoperability and Automated Mapping (INTAMAP)
Logo of the "INTAMAP"projectThe aim of "INTAMAP" (2006 to 2009) was the development and realisation of strategies to harmonise and interpolate environmental measuring data using the example of gamma dose rate data collected EU-wide. Furthermore, automated evaluation and representation methods on the basis of Open Source software and standardised service architecture has been implemented.

The project was coordinated by the Muenster University. Apart from the Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS), other partners were Utrecht University, Wageningen University, University of Crete, Aston University, Klagenfurt University, the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission and Keynetix Ltd.
Within the scope of the research project, generically applicable algorithms were developed for the harmonisation and spatial interpolation of environmental measuring data. Interpolation here means mathematical procedures to calculate phenomena at places for which no information is available on the basis of known measuring values at neighbouring places.

On the basis of European ambient dose rate measuring networks data of the European Radiological Data Exchange Platform (EURDEP), corresponding procedures for the automated evaluation and extensive display of data have been developed. The developed algorithms are available free of licensing fees. At the same time they were implemented as generic services in the form of a standardised WebService and are, thus, accessible to the public.

The quality of the algorithms was analysed and optimised with the help of numerous radiological scenarios taking into account both natural and artificial extreme events.
