Workplan

Milestone 1 (Kick Off + 6 months) – Requirements & Methodology
The first six months of the project is devoted to:

  • Analyzing the requirements of the Water Framework Directive and related GMES Projects
  • Establishing the exact scope of the applications to be covered (i.e. defining Use Cases) and defining the related testing to be carried out

The main deliverables are:

  • The Data Harmonisation Requirements Report
  • Methodology & Standards Guidelines on Use Case and Schema Development

These deliverables will be important inputs into the parallel MOTIIVE Project.

Milestone 2 (KO+12 months) – Implementation Specifications
The second six months of the project takes the Use Cases and Guidelines Document generated previously and develops first the conceptual and then the actual application schema required by the project. The definition of the process is one of the major outputs of this activity. Deliverables include:

  • Use Case Descriptions together with guidelines as to how to generate them
  • Services Architecture Outline
  • Conceptual Schema in UML
  • Draft Product Specifications
  • Draft Application Schema in UML

These outputs of this phase form the main core of the project

Milestone 3 (KO+18 months) – Implementation & Testing
The next 6 months of the project implements a test environment which both tests the validity of the previous work and allows users to see practical demonstrations of application schema in operation. This will allow users to more easily see the benefits of the data harmonisation process.

This period of the project will also see the issues of cost-benefit analysis being addressed. A seminar and other dissemination activities will also take place during this period to publicise the results of the project.

Milestone 4 (project end) – Definition of the Repeatable Capabilities & Dissemination
The last phase of the project will serve at consolidating the lessons learnt during the project, both internally within the consortium, and externally, by a major episode of the interaction with the different segments of actors that can contribute to a wide take-up of the results of the project.

This interaction will be in the two directions of having the projects results reviewed and commented, and of disseminating its concepts, raising awareness of the requirements for interoperability and standards for the set up of a European Spatial Data Infrastructure, and its many benefits to all concerned. This phase would also comprise the set up of an OGC interoperability experiment involving RISE and MOTIIVE.
