Abstract

A new tool, based on Open Source software, is presented that ease at the same time data handling and collaborative work in geosciences and in particular in the field of geophysics. This requires data to be moved from traditional media to computer based storage systems, allowing it to be accessible from a web based data retrieving and analysing portal. To organize and search the mass of data and metadata a relational database linked to the web server should be used. In this framework vertical applications that can directly handle and format data should also be included. Since all these applications live independently to allow the communication among them a scripting layer should be provided. This is responsible also for the collaborative work aspects, since collects, manages and publish through workflow models, information, messages and decisions taken by the workgroup
