W42 - a scalable spatial database system for holding Digital Elevation Models

Habermeyer, Martin and Marschalk, Ursula and Roth, Achim (2009) W42 - a scalable spatial database system for holding Digital Elevation Models. Geoinformatics, 2009 17th International Conference on, 12.-14. Aug. 2009, Fairfax, VA, USA. ISBN 978-1-4244-4562-2



The design of a scalable system for holding spatial data in general and digital elevation models (DEMs) in specific has to account for the characteristics of data from various application fields. The data can be heterogeneous in coverage, as well as in resolution, information content and quality. A database aiming at the representation of world-wide DEMs has to consider these differences in the design of the system with respect to the structure and the algorithms. The database system W42, which is presented in the work at hand, is a scalable spatial database system capable of holding, extracting, mosaicking, and fusing spatial data represented in raster- as well as in vector-format. Design aspects for this task can be specified as holding spatial data in unique data structures and providing unique access functions to the data. These are subject of this work as well as first experiences gained from the implementation of part of the extensions made for the TanDEM-X mission.
