Summary

The GRACE Information System and Data Center designed, implemented and operated for the management of all scientific GRACE products is one fixed part of the GRACE Science Data infrastructure. The main objectives for the long term archiving and the worldwide dissemination of GRACE data and metadata driven by user requirements as well as the underlying software development work-flow from the business modelling, analysis and design up to the implementation and deployment steps are described in the following article.
