  11. 11. Challenge: Display & Reconfigure
  12. 12. ICT in Universality OD App Dev Acquire data from multiple (open) sources on Internet Process Visualize Interact Compute
  13. 13. ICT in Other OD App Dev Source a Source b & Format & Format 1 2 Source z & Format NVisualization: Simple/ Searchable/ Filtered etc.
  14. 14. Eg OD App Dev: Disparate SourcesProblem : Inappropriate fishing gear impacts the marineresource through by-catch and reduces efficiency withwhich fishers catch target species. Policies & regulationsexist but damaging practices prevail.Data Sources:• Species vs Oceanological Zones• Species vs Gear Type• Fishing fleet, species translation• Catch and Effort data• Trinidad Tobago Fishing Policies and Regulations• Fisheries and Aquaculture Statistics• Fishery and Aquaculture Country Profiles• Global By-Catch Assessments• Other possible sources in support of value added features
