Methodologies, tools, data models and communication protocols for assessing the environmental impact

D5.1 will describe the environmental data model and the dependencies among certain type of measurements. It will define the methodology to access and enrich the data store with new sensor measurements but also to assist in making the dataset always relevant by offering the ability to add/update data types or perform mass changes due to re-calibrations or cases of bad maintenance to the measuring infrastructure revealed a lot later than the collection of the readings. D5.1 will also identify the various KPIs that will help us to measure the environmental impact by revealing insights around comparisons among different sensor readings or by visualizing change for a specific type of measurement by dimensions such as temporal and regional.
