Environmental data exchange for inland waters using independent software agents: Scientific results in the period July 2001 to June 2002

Project ID: 1966
Funded under: FP5-JRC

Abstract

This report describes the progress in the Environmental Data Exchange for Inland Water (EDEN-IW) shared cost action project within the Fifth Framework Programme, sponsored by DG INFSO of the European Commission. The objective of the project is to make existing distributed environmental data available to citizens and other users through an intelligent interface acting as a one-stop shop. The system is based on the technology of independent software agents operating through one common interface and using a common 'language' for handling information requests. The scientific progress during the first year of the project has been good, and collaboration between partners and users is going well.
