MONITOR – Monitoring System of the Development of Global Aviation
In order to allow holistic statements about the air transport development on different spatial levels with regard to society-relevant targets, the professional choice, update and analysis of data is mandatory. For this purpose the project MONITOR has been launched in the framework of the 7th EU Research Programme. The results of the MONITOR project followed in this context three perspectives:
1. A detailed (meta-) database was elaborated, which provides all interested actors detailed information on relevant air transport data but also on important framework data sources. The datasets contain in this context statistics, reports and databases, which can serve to describe, analyse and evaluate the air transport development over the long-term on a global scale.
2. An indicator scheme on system internal measures and measures, which describe the interchanges between air transport and its surroundings, should be made available. This indicator system allows investigating former long-term trends in air transport in a compacted, precise and fast way in order to a come to a conclusion on the most important drivers but also challenges with regard to the air transport sector.
3. The third part of the MONITOR portal should be concentrated on the long-term future perspectives of global air transport. The corresponding work process included in concrete an update of the framework data and important air transport related assumptions of a set of scenarios which were developed in the "CONSAVE 2050" project ("Constrained Scenarios on Aviation and Emissions").
The MONITOR portal will be updated and improved continuously.
