Establish a clearing house with GIS functionality for research data


Research WPs

  • Improve the availability and use of (spatial) research data relevant in the forestry domain for Europa through a clearing house mechanism

Specific objectives:

  • Define a common reference framework (i.e. ontology) for forestry data covering the EU across sources
  • Define a useful institutional framework to make data available respecting IPR of the data-owners
  • Enhance the GIS capabilities of existing data sources
  • Develop a clearing house as a common reference point to access the data sources made available through geo-enabled web services.
