GeoShare - Interpreting Place Related Information
Start date: Sep 26, 2002,
End date: Dec 30, 2005
The main aim of the project was to support a balanced improvement of the application of the new information and communication technologies in the North Sea Region through the specification, development and validation of a set of innovative, user-centric, integrated and interactive services for better governance. Achievements: The main achievement of the GeoShare project was the development of the GeoShare knowledge management system for the integration and interpretation of a large set of previously non-integrated systems and services in the four participating regions. GeoShare project developed a complete geo-data infrastructure built on a combination of open source components, custom made integration and middle-ware services and an easily customisable template for developing new end-user services for public sector, citizens and business communities. In-depth information about the various components links to where they can be downloaded and instructions on how to install them can be found on the project website www.geosahre.net.Tangible results have been produced through the provision of a GeoShare framework, toolset and guidelines on how to share information through a GIS based infrastructure. In addition, each region has also implemented additional services, inspired by the other GeoShare regions. For instance, in Edinburgh the GeoShare platform has provided a new service for the introduction of students to the city linked into the portal Share Edinburgh. These modules have also been mainstreamed into the ICT infrastructure of the city council.
