No deviation to report.


The beneficiary should report here a bullet list highlighting the main achievements of the reporting period

FAO Activities

FAO is in the process of contracting the services of a consultant to collect and harmonize capture statistics with target users in Africa and the Pacific. This requires discussion the opportunities offered through the ICIS VRE and the wider e-Infrastructure.

Part of the tasks of the consultant will be to prepare a feed-back and requirements collection mechanisms for:

  • End-users,
  • Data managers,
  • Codelist managers,
  • Developers.

In addition, FAO discussed the opportunity of using D4S technologies as a platform for the existing VRMF application for a global registry of vessels and the management of their details over multiple dimensions (space, time, ownership, physical characteristics).


None to report.


A ToR will be sent to the identified ICIS VRE related consultant

The potential for VRMF 'hosting' in the infrastructure was agreed. The effort to plan a cost-effective migration of (parts of) the application will now have to be negotiated in the CoP.

CNR Activities

The Species Discovery Interface Portlet has been enhanced with new features. A more complex management of occurrence points has been introduced, along with a feature for displaying them on a map. Inspection of occurrence points details is now possible and data can be saved on the d4Science workspace. Effort was even made about the design of the views described in M4.


no deviations from the plans.


  • Management of occurrence points
  • production of occurrence points maps
  • interaction with the workspace
  • enhancement of the views

FIN Activities

FIN worked on new versions of input tables needed to generate AquaMaps on the VRE. Two new HCAF tables are now available for differnt IPCC scenarios.


The beneficiary should report here major issues faced in the reporting period and the identified corrective actions, if any.


  • a new HCAF (Half-Degree Cell Authority File) table for the IPCC A1B scenario was completed (GFDL CM2.1 model), including new 2100 environmental parameter fields.
  • a new HCAF table for the IPCC A2 scenario was completed (IPSL model), including new 2100 environmental parameter fields.
