In this presentation you will get a brief overview about experiences about the
development of National Environmental Information System in Hungary. Regular
collection of environmental data in Hungary goes back to the early eighties, parallel
with establishment of administrative structure for environment management. Different
environmental media was managed by different administrative bodies resulting in a lot
of confusions and delays both in administrative procedures and reporting the state of
environment. After the change in the political and economical structure in Hungary in
1990, we faced the following problems: legal regulation for data collection was
outdated, there were several databases, but in different form, both from technical and
organizational point of view. Our solution was based on three pillars to overcome these
difficulties. Firstly, according to new Environmental Protection Act in 1995, we
introduced new regulations for environmental data collection, secondly we set up a
National Environmental Information Center and thirdly we elaborated a unique
identification system. As most of the environmental data connected to a geographical
location we chose GIS for proper managing our environmental data. The elaborated
identification system helped us to build up a nationwide GIS based Environmental
Information System. The System was developed in modules, step by step, but the
different modules could be linked to each other very easily due to our unique ID system.
The system consists of two parts: one for administrative professionals and one for
general public. The presentation is a sum up of the lessons learned from the nearly tenyear-
long development procedure.
