In contrast to specialised desktop modelling systems, ODEN is delivered via an easy-to-use web interface. Users log on via a web-browser and immediately have access to base data-sets required for noise modelling. The user typically extracts data for the area they wish to model and then checks and edits this data if necessary. Once satisfied that the data is in order, they may submit models for calculation or approval by a coordinating party. ODEN is unique in that it allows for centralised capture and management of input data from multiple agencies & authorities. ODEN also complies with interoperability standards thus supporting the SDI goals of INSPIRE.ODEN integrates with spatial data servers such as ArcGIS Server, GeoMedia, Oracle and WFS-T and others upon request.
