NATURE - SDI - Best practice network for SDI in nature conservation

naturesdi

NATURE - SDI - Best practice network for SDI in nature conservation

Duration: 30 months (2008 - 2011)

Start: 1/10/2008

Project Website:http://www.nature-sdi.eu/

Principal Investigator: Χρίστος Σχίζας

Main Funding Source: EU-ECONTENPLUS

Total Cost: 62 399

The NATURE-SDIplus project’s main aim is to establish a Best Practice Network on geographical information for nature conservation to stimulate the members and, in perspective, the target users at improving the harmonisation of their datasets on nature conservation to better exploit and access them. NATURE-SDIplus proposes, as a first attempt toward the harmonisation process, the evaluation of the common metadata profile as defined by the INSPIRE DT MD which is focusing on discovery mandatory elements (a set of metadata elements to provide a comprehensive and relevant description of community resources) based on the ISO 19115/119 standards and a common data model compliant with INSPIRE specifications. The accessibility of the metadata profile by the target users beyond the end of the project is assured by publishing the profile as a CEN document. In this way the information is accessible for all members of the EU and EFTA. The data accessibility is supported by a set of web services available and accessible by the NATURE-SDIplus Geo-portal having also the aim to attract and encourage the involvement of the NATURE-SDIplus Network members and stakeholders in this process.

Welcome

Welcome to the website of the Department of Computer Science at the University of Cyprus. The Department has experienced significant growth over the last few years with strong groups in artificial intelligence, computer architecture, computer networks, data management, graphics and virtual reality, internet computing, software engineering and theoretical computer science. The Department offers a Bachelor degree in Computer Science with 7 different specializations as well as a number of Master degrees and a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science.

The Department has a strong research infrastructure comprising high-performance clusters and storage area networks, cloud computing facilities, smart-phones and sensing devices and virtual reality equipment. Since 2005, our Department has been involved in more than 160 research projects funded from both the European Union and the Cyprus Research Promotion Foundation with total funding of over 21.5 million euros.
