WP 1 – Requirements, Design, Benchmarking, Component Integration

This work package aims at: (1) specifying use cases and to collect end-user requirements from the application areas by consulting end user groups and other technology users; (2) identify technical requirements and constraints as well as interoperability standards to be adopted, (3) specify an architecture and system design for the GeoKnow Generator; (4) develop an early prototype of the GeoKnow Generator as an early proof of concept and (5) design and implement a continuous benchmarking system. Along with these objectives, we will ensure that the project addresses specific end user and industry needs; the GeoKnow technology is flexible and extensible to other domains; the development is in line with the major geo-spatial initiatives by leveraging on, complementing and not reduplicating work already done in this area; social networking approaches, such as for providing feedback on the data quality, correcting errors and adding facts, translations or links,are tightly integrated in the GeoKnow Generator in a generic manner; pre-existing technology developed by the project partners is harmonized. Relevant standards to be adopted shall be monitored under this WP. We will use iterative refinement processes, e.g. by re-assessing the requirements with the help of the end user communities. These will be adapted, if necessary.
