Czech Republic pilot is focused on the forest site classification, sustainable management and utilisation of forest road network using the National Forest Inventory and the Regional Plans for Development datasets. Data products and statistical outcomes will be widely open, standardised and accessible by foresters and public bodies through web services and applications.
The Italian pilot in Sicily will explore the role of aggregating information from different Open Data sources in order to support ARPA institutional mission of providing up to date monitoring of water quality in Sicily. Some of the main issues to address are (i) Overcoming the barriers (cultural, political, administrative) to opening up the data; (ii) Identifying the optimal role of the general public in crowdsourcing environmental information; (iii) Identifying the technical means of publication; (iv) Overcoming incompatibilities of datasets in terms of technical standards (eg JSON vs XML), semantic structuring, etc.; (v) Optimum ways of aggregation, analysis, and visualisation to support decision-making for the different stakeholders including the general public.
Irish Pilot will focus on the use of the SmartOpenData to provide open data and open INSPIRE-compliant geospatial sources for environmental researchers particularly focused on biodiversity and habitats, building on the participative social validation and pilots of the HABITATS project in particular. This will overlap with the Public Sector pilot (decision makers, parks environmental monitoring, cartographic services and remote sensing), the Citizens Pilot (similar but more technical sources of open data), Enterprise Pilot (exploitation open public data sources to create new value added services).
Portugal-Spain Pilot will focus on building a web based collaborative spatial data infrastructure prototype with the main goal of promoting sustainable agroforestry management. It will be built as a collaborative powerful tool for environment protection and economic development of rural areas, and as a key factor for water management and drinking water protection.
