Abstract: Currently there are thousand container events happening daily on more than 20 000 locations in the World. Some of these locations are big international ports and others are just little cities with not precise coordinates in the free available Data Bases (DB). Verification and validation these locations are at the same time a very important task and a challenging one. This paper describes the development of a web-based geographical information system for assisting in verifying and modifying geographical data in DB by interactive intuitive GIS technique. For the proper work of the system, first we collected geographical data for container ports from different open sources according to the known container ports’ names from our ConTraffic System. Then we stored it in a dataset in our DB and we created a map-based application which allows us to see not only the data in tabular view but also the geographical position of the ports over a map. Using this web-based application all the data can be modified quite easy, including the geographical coordinates. They can be modified directly by just typing the correct coordinates or by interactive way (drag the graphical object to the correct geographical position on the map).
