How to find information I am looking for?
Central navigation element of this site is the Main Menu in the upper part of the site. You may access all available sections from here. Hovering with the mouse over the menu items will display existing sub-menus. In addition the left and right areas of the screen will show additional information, according to the section you are currently in.
Some of the menu items will lead you to additional information sources outside the main web page. The GEO-SPATIAL SECTION, for example is hosted at our connected GOOGLE MAPS web site, because some of the required inter-active features can be provided only via the GOOGLE MAPS hosting area. Clicking at a menu item that leads to places outside our main web page, usually opens a new window or tab of your browser, so the danger of wander off is minimized.
In order to get an overview on the content of the site, it is recommended to have a look at the SITEMAP. It is accessible via a link in the footer area of the site.
