FAO Activities

FAO performed activities that are part of maintenance of the VREs, i.e. collected feedback on their current scope, data-management facilities, and re-use in the wider EA-CoP 'ecosystem':

  • prepare materials for demo of ICIS, VTI, and AM to representatives of the FAO VME-DB project with the aim of identifying their scope of interest. Provide feedback as tickets on elements where 'enhancements' can be considered.
  • reviewed the current capabilities of ICIS in Codelist management and curation for geospatial scenarios, and forwarded comments to CNR as 'enhancement tickets'
  • Conducted a review of the proposed VREs and applications, and revised the template to define their scope as 'products'.

T6.2 Virtual Research Environments Resources and Tools Provision

FAO Activities

The FAO activities are related closely to WP3 activities, and sometimes are difficult to distinguish. Where WP3 focuses on analysis and bringing coherence, WP6 focuses on deployment. The alignment of the activities in both WP's evidences the emerging of a software development cycle involving external entities. Activities where WP3 has already achieved technical development status:

  • Initiated the external Codelist manager that will extend the existing CL Management facility
    • Discused requirements with a.o. FAO-CIO, AgInfra, BoI (WP3)
    • Started an Os Project (WP6)
  • Released next version of OpenSDMX (reported also under WP3)
    • Support for compression of SDMX Generic format datasets for the Repository and Registry, see (HowTo)
    • SDMX client with support for compression of SDMX Generic format datasets for the Repository
    • SDMX client: streaming is supported for SDMX 2.0 Generic dataset
  • SPREAD discussion on moving elements into the e-Infrastructure (WP3) / improve interoperability with ICIS and geospatial data in the e-Infrastructure (WP6 )
