The vulnerable marine ecosystems (VME DB) factsheet workflow

  1. 1. iMarine data platform for collaborations, 7th March 2014, FAO (Rome) The Vulnerable Marine Ecosystems (VME-DB) factsheet workflow iMarine Reports Manager as a content management for fact sheets Aureliano Gentile (FAO) – VME-DB fact sheets workflow – iMarine data platform for collaborations , 7th March 2014, FAO (Rome)
  2. 2. Background • Understanding the impacts of bottom contact gears used by deep-sea fisheries on the seafloor is of the utmost priority. • The United Nations General Assembly adopted resolutions that inspired FAO to coordinate the development of The International Guidelines for the Management of Deep-Sea Fisheries on the High Seas. • Since 2006, RFMO/As have developed measures to protect benthic VMEs and their coral and sponge communities. • This has generated a large amount of dispersed and difficult to access information that Vulnerable Marine Ecosystems database (VME-DB) • This has generated a large amount of dispersed and difficult to access information that is now being entered on to a VME database to assist in informed decision making and the development of further measures to increase sustainability and reduce impacts. • The VME database is also aiming to facilitate partnerships and create networks among the community of users, information contributors and those working on the protection of VMEs in the high seas.

  4. 4. Vulnerable Marine Ecosystems database (VME-DB) The problem Ensure a sustainable maintenance (delegating authority, distributing the efforts) • Get a Content Management System (CMS) to handle the VME data In a given data structure In a specific workflow Within a limited funds availability! The solution The iMarine Reports ManagerThe iMarine Reports Manager A flexible CMS for reading content in whatever database schema User friendly interface Role-based workflow Real time integration Short development (three months) Delivered on time and on budget

  6. 6. Vulnerable Marine Ecosystems database (VME-DB) iMarine Terms of Use applied to VME-DB • The Reports Manager application is instantiated in a dedicated Virtual Research Environment (VRE) for the VME database • A private VRE with restricted access to selected users is foreseen in the iMarine Terms of Use • The VRE is not exposing data directly to the public nor sharing with other VREs hence no specific license is required
  7. 7. Vulnerable Marine Ecosystems database (VME-DB) Other services • The iMarine distributed e-infrastructure provides the VME community with a collaborative workspace through a Virtual Research Environment (VRE) for information sharing and analysis. • The community can take advantage of the e-Infrastructure to access Biodiversity, Environmental and Fisheries data from other VREs.
