T3.2 Governance Mechanisms, Policies and Guidelines Development

FAO Activities

Identified a contributor to develop a document on data access and sharing policies. Initiated a draft on software policies for the imarine CoP. Met with CNR on technology opportunities; more spcifically on geospatial data access, statistical data analysis. this requires that the CoP takes note of these very attractive features, develops use-ases in the Business Cases, and defines the terms of use and distribution of products.

The early involvement of the CoP in these technology developments can improve the technology focus, shorten development time, and improve buy-in in the user-community. Preparations for discussion in the imarine Board are under way.

T3.3 Harmonisation of Metadata, Semantics and Technologies

FAO Activities

Advising IRD on the OpenSDMX implementation and adding security layer to OpenSDMX.

Discussing validation with Eurostat, MT, Agilis and Bank of Italy.

Prepared position paper on OpenSDMX for distribution in the project Board and beyond.

Prepared a position on geospatial technologies and data to use in the spatial re-allocation of data. Continued off-line testing and development of time-series re-allocation and display on maps.

Design and discuss a prototype Data Access Plugin for SPARQL endpoint.

This required effort to understand of the Data Access Component architecture and data exchange mechanisms. The last required a further investigation of the Tree Manager Framework, and the analogies between a Graph model and a Tree model.

This has now reached the stage of unit-testing the SPARQL plugin first prototype (See also T3.3. and WP9).

Investigate the ingestion of RDF geospatial data from geoserver to Fisheries Linked Open Data.

This resulted in a JAVA based procedure that interfaces the Geoserver instance to a FLOD RDF generator using a level of metadata stored in Geonetwork server.

The activity was halted after documenting the issues related to settings on the Geonetwork and Geoserver. To solve these, effort in other WP's has to be allocated. Issue will pass to PEB.

The spatial re-allocation process is being documentation; the current implementation requires an implementation proposal for iMarine.

Design facilities to dynamically map catch timeseries.

Design integration of a semantic KB (FLOD) with Geoserver/Geonetwork.

Identify Geospatial improvements and assigned priority (to be completed in February).
