  8. EFIS functionality • Catalogue function; node of GFIS. • Searchable register of Forest Inf. Objects. • DC, XML, WS OK • Distributed Database (ddb) • Interoperable data access… • WS Federation, Grids, etc • …of mutually compatible and comparable data • …for processing, analysis and decision support • Agregation, • Comparision, • Modelling and Forecasting. NEFIS Mid-term Meeting Vienna May 2004 WP3 Summary

  9. PROBLEM 1 • The data in national databases (i.e. Forest Inventories) are NOT consistent or compatable. • Forest area; dbh; volume-to; productivity class…. • Well known to EFICS (89, 97) which looked at : • Harmonisation • (adoption of common standards - very expensive) • Standardisation • (adjustment/scaling of data to compatibility – not easy) • CONCLUSION: Data-access interoperability is not enough, by itself. NEFIS Mid-term Meeting Vienna May 2004 WP3 Summary

  10. SOLUTION • Standardisation models required to: • Convert National inventory data to a common flexible STANDARD • Convert between different National standards • Empirical Data is required. • Too expensive? • Use of Heuristic Modelling Patches in NEFIS demonstrator? (From EFICS data???) • Need a Standards Conversion Toolkit (SCTK) NEFIS Mid-term Meeting Vienna May 2004 WP3 Summary

  11. PROBLEM 2 • All the national databases have different base-dates. • Hence, the national databases are base-date inconsistent. NEFIS Mid-term Meeting Vienna May 2004 WP3 Summary

  12. SOLUTION? • National Inventory up-dating models are needed. • Equivalent to Inventory-based forecasting models. • Forest Inventory Forecasting Toolkit? • Not Easy!!! • Expensive! • Localised or Centralised? NEFIS Mid-term Meeting Vienna May 2004 WP3 Summary

  13. PROBLEM 3 • Where do the standardisation and up-dating processes fit within the EFIS++ ddb interoperability middleware? NEFIS Mid-term Meeting Vienna May 2004 WP3 Summary

  14. SOLUTION(S) • In the central EFIS ++ processing engine? • Possible. • This may be complicated, and very slow. • Possible alternative solution: Construct a centralised standardised and updated Data Warehouse of European Forest Inventories. • Re-freshed only periodically • High quality • Fast access • Easy to analyse, model and mine. NEFIS Mid-term Meeting Vienna May 2004 WP3 Summary

  15. Standards in the GI Sector • Standards • ISO • OpenGIS Abstract Specifications • Spatial Catalogues and Metadata, including Z39.50, XML, ISO & FGDC • Web Mapping • Vector Features – GML • Grid Features • Coordinate Reference Systems NEFIS Mid-term Meeting Vienna May 2004 WP3 Summary

  26. Where Now for WP3? • Progress the population of the NEFIS KB • Progress the analysis/understanding of European forest information processes, requirements and actors through Use Cases. • Progress the analysis of a European Forest Information System for Decision Support through UML. • Closer integration with WP2.
