ENVIROFI – The Environmental Observation Web and its Service Applications within the Future Internet
ENVIROFI targets the large amounts of valuable environmental observation data which represent a wealth of information, currently not used. Therefore, integration with other fragmented data and information sources, traditionally managed by research and educational institutions and industries is required. ENVIROFI will address such important issues by specifying the requirements, and building conceptual prototypes, of the specific enablers of the environmental usage area in the Future Internet. It will bring these diverse stakeholder communities together to understand environmentally observed processes with higher spatial resolutions and contextual situation awareness at an unprecedented scale.
ENVIROFI will explore the advances needed by the stakeholder communities for secure access to decentralized, interactive Internet-enabled geospatial and intelligent fusion services using data from authorities, researchers, people and private sector organisations. It will allow all these participants to plug in their personalised experiments and also feedback into the ENVIROFI Environmental Observation Web.
