Economical activity at marine coastal benthic habitats M.Alberts, A.Ikauniece, P.Bruns, J.Kalnins, J.Martinsons IMCS, Riga, 23 May, 2011
Situation overviewLatvian marine coastal habitats are currently representedby various sets of data owned by Latvian Institute of AquaticEcology (LIAE). As the coastal region encompasses also protected areas(Natura 2000) with limited allowed actions the knowledge onlocation of habitats and their value is essential for all types ofeconomical activities.The cross-border nature of any marine data on habitatsituation therefore is relevant also for the other countriessharing the Baltic Sea area.
Data “mining”Latvian Institute of Aquatic Ecology datasets: biotopes, water bodies,monitoring data - stations and video monitoring data, bottom type,physico-chemical features – temperature and salinity regimes, content ofoxygen and nutrients, density of benthic animals, marine sediment composition,Potential additional thematic datasets (depends from other projectsuccess and results): – GORWIND – areas suitable for the development of the wind energy production, – MARMONI – addtional knowledge on benthic habitats in the protected areas.
Additional datasetsEuropoean Environment Agency (EEA) produced data: Natura2000 database Ramsar sites Biogeographical regions
What is HABITATS project?HABITATS project (Social Validation of INSPIRE Annex III Data Structures in EU Habitats) focuses on the adoption of INSPIRE standards through a participatory process to design and validate Data, Metadata and Services Specifications with real citizens and business.
HABITATS objectives Build HABITATS User Communities of stakeholders involved in the demand and supply of spatial information, usage scenarios, requirements and services Consolidate best practice from previous experiences Define and implement data and metadata models for INSPIRE Annex III themes 16, 17, 18 and 19 Design and open and efficient HABITATS
What are the needs of the Latvian Institute of Aquatic Ecology Harmonize existing data, Get infrastructure for harmonized data management and use, Possibility to publish data.
Main overlaps Consolidate best practice from previous experiences Any previous experience and examples are useful Define and implement data and metadata models for INSPIRE Annex III themes 16, 17, 18 and 19 Define common data models for internal use in organization, perfect if we can
To be compliantHarmonize data to be INSPIRE/HABITATS data model compliantWe have:Currently harmonized one type data to one data model in organizationTo do:Implement INSPIRE/HABITATS data model and migrate data to this model, if this models is not usable for daily work provide compliant view on data. The main problem
HABITATS Use caseThe provision of information about possible economical activities in marine areas is one of the pilot cases in project INSPIRED HABITATS. INSPIRED HABITATS infrastructure and platform implementation is planned as INSPIRE requirement compliant.To provide such information it is planned to reuse project GORWIND results - the defined matrix of factors and possible activities in selected area.
HABITATS Use caseTo make use case scenario INSPIRE compliant WPS service will be used.
HABITATS use caseFor implementation of the envisaged WPS we depend on: GORWIND results, INSPIRE/HABITATS data modelling results, GORWIND and INSPIRE/HABITATS results’ matching to be possible for the use in one system.
Desktop applicationAs default proposed desktop application is used Quantum GIS, because: supports all mainly used web services, is good PostgreSQL support, GUI is translated in Latvian language, flexible GUI and input form customization (important if linked tables with code lists that may change are used) is for freeSince well known components are used in
WEB clientDefault web client is OpenLayers with small customization.Depending from needs and development stage web client can be replaced with other well known and well developed clients like: HS Layers MapFish
MetadataMicka metadata system will be used as meta- data system deployed under Technology Development Forum (TDF) [http://geoportal.tdf.lv/]Reason to use existing service: LIAE dataset and service amount currently is small and own metadata system deployment is financialy inapropriate Organization is not so big to maintain their own system
