The Information System named SISelune

The SISelune information system: a direct access to scientific data from the program named Selune.

Main overview

The SISelune information system (IS) has 3 main goals:

  1. Make data from the scientific program available.
  2. Organize and maintain data and access to it (storage, consultation, downloading).
  3. Help to understand these data and the observations made by scientists on the Selune river.

It complies with the European Inspire Directive and the FAIR principles (more information here). It is based on a technical base of computer tools serving the different stages of the path followed by the data from acquisition to consultation and involving many verification operations, transformations and enrichments before storage and diffusion.

In particular, it includes:

  • a web map portal that displays the program's monitoring stations and sectors, and provides direct access to the data collected,
  • a metadata catalog describing all program data and allowing data to be downloaded in various formats (including shapefile or csv)


Access to data

There are two ways to access the data:

Do you know what you're looking for? or you want to know more about data?

Use the geocatalog to perform your search and access the metadata (what is the dataset? what's inside? how this dataset is built?), and then view or download the data.

Would you like an overview of the available data ? consult or download this or that dataset ?

You can use the geospatial web portal to visualize available data on a Selune watershed territory. This 1st overview will allow you to navigate among the different datasets (by displaying them, hiding them, consulting them) and thus build your own data map.

The website (on which you are currently browsing) will give you the keys to understand the program and the issues surrounding the ecological restoration of the Selune River.
