Reportnet is Eionet’s infrastructure for supporting and improving data and information flows. Reportnet is based on a set of inter-related tools and processes which all build on the active use of the World Wide Web. Reportnet has been developed since 2000 and has been in operational use since 2002.
The system integrates different web services and allows for distributed responsibilities. Reportnet was initially used for reporting environmental data to EEA, but is now also hosting some of DG Environment’s reporting tasks. The open system permits deliveries to other national and international organisations in a very transparent way.
Data Exchange Modules are used to collect and validate data delivered by the countries. Most DEMs are Excel templates that are converted to XML by CDR. Others are online webforms.
Disclaimer: These documents discusses scenarios for future extensions to the Reportnet system. There is no guarantee that the functionality described will be implemented in the form described or even implemented.
