In the research project "ÖKOBAUDAT and Europe II" an international networking of EPD databases with distributed search function was demonstrated.
This screencast shows how multiple database nodes (such as the ÖKOBAUDAT), which are operated by independent data providers, can be used to form a data network. On such a network, a distributed search can be initiated that will retrieve matching results from all the member nodes.
The screencast was developed within the project "ÖKOBAUDAT and Europe II", as well as the bilingual sample data and the demonstration network with three demo nodes. The shown functionality is foreseen to be used to build the international data network which is planned by the InData Working Group.
