FAO Activities

FAO participated to several meetings during the reporting meeting;

  • iMarine Board meeting - closure of the March Board meeting, and presentations, discussion and acceptance of Board work plan
  • with FAO OEKC on a shared inititative to develop a code list manager. The plan is to 'seed' the application with the existing Vocbench application.

FIN Activities

The main activity was to explore the possibility to promote iMarine in the Coral Triangle Initiative (www.coraltriangleinitiative.org).

The WorldFish Center is responsible for producing an electronic atlas, and FIN was approached independently to add the related AquaMaps to the atlas. Discussions are still ongoing to shape up a proposal. The goal is to deliver the AquaMaps through the VRE, and over this proof of concept to promote iMarine as the repository of the entire atlas.

Another activity was to start a concept note to make a proposal for the Darwin Initiative grants to use ReefBase, FishBase, SeaLifeBase through AquaMaps to evaluate how much marine biodiversity is covered by Marine Protected Areas, again as a joint project between WorldFish and FIN. The coverage would be the eastern part of the Coral Triangle (From Philippines to Solomon Is.).

Last, the announcement of the TDWG annual conference that will be held in China, Beijing, was out, and we started to check how we could promote iMarine there through the name match VRE.

T3.2 Governance Mechanisms, Policies and Guidelines Development

FAO Activities

The Geoprocessing continued interaction with Terradue to enrich the Intersection algorithm. (single output, attributes, process controls e.g. CRS checking, expected output geometry type). Worked with VLIZ on geometry validity of Geoserver outputs (VLIZ Geoserver layer face problems of geometry validity)

For SPREAD the Intersection Discovery was discussed with CNR and the experiment a Java procedure to search intersection objects on the IE Intersection results continued. The WPS Data processing; was discussion with Terradue and experimented with a WPS-Hadoop algorithm to reallocate data (area-weighted reallocation). This enabled to start brainstorming on more complex reallocation cases (probability-based) using the E results.

In ICIS, some requirements were reported in TRAC, as a base for discussion ICIS functional design with CNR and EA-CoP (RFB's).

Several parallel GIS activities worth mentioning are now the GIS technology requirements to publish TimeSeries statistics maps in iMarine/ICIS (list requirements for a GIS statistical mapper, experiment automatic publishing of Virtual SQL View layers in Geoserver to enhance the GeoserverInterface gCube library).

FORTH Activities

We continued the discussions regarding the Top-Level Ontology (TLO). We agreed to use ISO-21127:2006 as a guide for defining the concepts of that ontology. The starting point will be to identify the main concepts of interest from partners (IRD and FAO) and based on these a first (draft) version of TLO will be created. Consequent steps will take place in order to extend and refine that ontology.

Regarding the purpose of the ontology is to act as a mediator between the different communities’ data and the software/services deployed in gCube. This means that communities will continue to use their adopted formats and appropriate mappings will formulate the data according to TLO.

The agreed work plan is the following: (a) IRD and FAO to provide the (most important) concepts of their semantic sources plus a description of them and (b) FORTH will use ISO-21127:2006 as a guide for designing a first draft of the TLO.
