The Environmental Observation Web and its Service Applications within the Future Internet

The Environmental Observation Web and its Service Applications within the Future Internet

Objective

Large European communities generate significant amounts of valuable environmental observations at local and regional scales using mobile communication devices, computers and sensors which are mostly connected to the internet. These communities' environmental observations represent a wealth of information which is currently unused and therefore in need for integration with other fragmented data and information sources, traditionally managed by research and educational institutions and industries. 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.
This achievement alone could have a profound socio-economic impact in Europe and contribute towards meeting the global challenges of industrial competitiveness and smart living in this decade. 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.
ENVIROFI will consolidate the Future Internet requirements from the Environmental Usage Area perspective and provide important specifications and prototypes of interoperable geospatial Environmental Enablers. These will be deployed in the Terrestrial, Atmospheric and Marine environments in collaboration with large stakeholder communities; and set the stage for large-scale trials in the Environmental Usage Area with a perspective of achieving sustainable socio-economic progress in Europe.
