IW:LEARN 7 Years of Plone

414
-1

Published on

IW:LEARN is a joint UNEP/UNDP project which works with GEF (Gloabal Envrionment Facility) International Waters projects to improve online sharing of data and information relevant to managing international waters, including marine, coastal and freshwater ecosystems.
Event Details

The IW:LEARN website acts a document clearinghouse and information and news hub for the GEF IW Projects. IW:LEARN also supplies Plone training and hosting for projects.

The IW:LEARN Team is spread around the globe (Bratislava, Nairobi, Bangkok and formerly Washington DC).

This talk will give an overview of the challenges and experiences using Plone in an internationally distributed project with requirements that are a good match for Plones capabilities and exceed what Plone offers out of the box.

For the needs of our content editors we have developed a set of tools that make metadata entry and extraction easier to encourage them to provide better quality metadata. This improves the User experience and discover-ability.

collective.ots to extract a meaningful description from the content
collective.simserver to automatically relate similar items
collective.langdet to determine the language of content



IW:LEARN integrates and visualizes geospatial information about the projects and their area of work which uses collective.geo extensively. In this talk we will show how we use Choropleth and Cluster maps for thematic mapping with collective.geo.

We also provide services for which Plone is not a good match so we use other technologies as well such as KARL (Knowledge management and sharing) or GeoNode (Sharing of geospatial data)

  14. 14. IW:LEARN 7 Years of Plone “Control over the use of ones ideas really  constitutes control over other peoples lives; and it is  usually used to make their lives more difficult.” Cost (free to download and install)Avoids dependence on vendors (vendor lock-in) for support and servicesAvoid costly upgrades and dropping of support of older software versions Security – with many eyes all bugs are shallow
  15. 15. IW:LEARN 7 Years of Plone Adoption of open standards (avoid non-standard formats and compatibility issues in proprietary software)Software can be readily customized (source code can be viewed and edited by anyone) Distribution to stakeholders is not restricted Any translation possible – investment may be too great for proprietary software developer Fast development cycle, rapid response time to bug reports

  20. 20. IW:LEARN 7 Years of PloneSimserver is built on Gensim. Gensim is a freePython framework designed to automaticallyextract semantic topics from documents, asefficiently (computer-wise) and painlessly(human-wise) as possible.
  21. 21. IW:LEARN 7 Years of PloneGensim aims at processing raw, unstructureddigital texts (“plain text”). The algorithms ingensim, such as Latent Semantic Analysis,Latent Dirichlet Allocation or RandomProjections, discover semantic structure ofdocuments, by examining word statistical co-occurrence patterns within a corpus of trainingdocuments. These algorithms are unsupervised,which means no human input is necessary – youonly need a corpus of plain text documents.
