Ecosystem Approach Community of Practice: ISFPA

From IMarine Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search
(Describe the expected service in maximum 3 sentences) The Sea Fisheries Protection Authority (ISFPA), which is the agency in Ireland with responsibility for Fisheries Control in Irish jurisdictional waters, .
In the last 2 years the electronic logbook project to all Irish vessels has been rolled out. Now that the project is up and running for all vessels the attention and focus is beginning to change towards data analysis.
The question for the internal data management team is how to make more use of the massive volumes of real-time data that is now streaming in from all vessels to ISFPA servers.

Priority to CoP
List proposed solution priority following the iMarine Board priority setting criteria:
  • The target community has been clearly identified; the internal ISPFA data management team for local fisheries.
  • The users .
  • Potential for co-funding; HIGH,
  • Structural allocation of resources; NONE, as this opportunity arose in 2013.
  • Referred in DoW; NO, but related to VTI and ICIS components.
  • Business Cases; BC1
  • How does the proposed action generally support sustainability aspects; By identifying and mobilizing a CoP, the use of the D4S infrastructure is promoted. By gaining access to a cost-effective infrastructure and tools, TBTI can achieved sustainable management goals.
  • How consistent is it with regulations/strategies; The proposed VRE fits the data strategy of the TBTI initiative.
  • Re-usability: TBTI re-uses FCPPS, ICIS, GeoExplorer, and VME-VRE components. The benefits of this are much reduced development costs, and shared maintenance costs. The compatibility with existing TBTI tools is not an issue, as these are in an early stage of development.
Relation to CoP Software:
ISPFA to clear. 
Relation to D4S technologies
ISPFA_VRE is likely to re-use relevant parts of:
* Time-series management
* Code list management
* GeoExplorer
* iSearch
The proposed measures are likely to be effective if ....
Does ISPFA_VRE reduce a known workload?
How must the component be delivered to users?

The UI Design is expected to be provided through D4S components such as:

* Time-series management
* Code list management
* GeoExplorer 
* iSearch

Assistance and on-line help are expected to be made available through D4S components

* On-line help through context sensitive help (screen elements through tooltips), page related help information, and links to relevant wiki-page sections.
* Assistance is available through the ISPFA_VRE manager, who can rely on infrastructure support. 
The training material
The support is expected to be organized in 3 tiers:
Tier 1 is a TBTI VRE manager trained in the full life-cycle management of a VRE. Duties include user-management, user support, confidentiality and policy compliance, and data integrity. 
Tier 2 is a D4Science VOVirtual Organization;  manager trained in technical support to VRE managers and users. This tier can only be activated by the VRE manager, or project management.
Tier 3 is the infrastructure manager that is responsible for infrastructure deployment and maintenanc. This tier is activated by tier 2, or project management.
