Abstract
    The submerged coastal heritage forms an important aspect of our cultural and archaeological patrimony and offers huge possibilities for scientific and (inter-) cultural purposes. Since the knowledge of this heritage is limited, gathering more data is one of the main objectives of the multidisciplinary project SeArch (Archaeological heritage in the North Sea, www.sea-arch.be). Additionally, these data will be used as a basis for a sustainable management by government agencies. To share, integrate and visualize the gathered archaeological and environmental data and information in a user-friendly way, an interactive web-based Geographical Information System/Service is created. By implementing this webGIS, the benefits of standard map reading (such as providing insight) are combined with facilities such as easy accessible spatial analysis and feature querying in an interactive environment, which is accessible worldwide. To create an interactive webGIS-platform, a good structured spatial database is needed. This paper provides more information about the configuration of the spatial database and the application of the software package GeoServer. The development of a fully functional spatial data infrastructure (SDI) using the most novel, reliable and powerful technological components is described. The objective of this SDI is to increase the accessibility and interoperability of spatial data for a wide range of users.
