Profiles for Security
Humboldt Deliverable A7.9-D3 (March 2010)
This document contains the final version of the application profile for border security. The profile consists of two packages: one for the operational data, and one for the topographic and other reference data. In addition attention is paid to the procedural part of crisis response by pointing at two related data models. These models are not limited to (border) security, but deal with spatial information and process flow in all kinds of crisis situations.
The document is available as PDF (736 kB).
Profiles for ocean and marine environment
Humboldt Deliverable A7.4-D3 (March 2010)
This document contains the final version of the data specification for the Ocean Scenario. It is based on the WP9 system specification for the Scenario, and on the information analysis discussions leading to the construction of the common Scenario data model. This common data model supports the use cases in the Scenario, that are centred around the monitoring and reporting of oil spills, with special attention to the risk of oil spills to »sensitive« areas (economically and environmentally sensitive areas). The Ocean Scenario has in the first phase of the system specification split-up the work into 4 sub- scenarios: Baltic Sea, French coast, English coast, Aegean Sea. In the course of 2009 also a combined cross-regional scenario has been developed, with focus on gathering statistics about past oil spills. The common data model of the Scenario will for the final version be extended to cover this new use case. This final version provides a broader scope making a link to similar or related models, projects and standards.
The document is available as PDF (390 kB).
Profiles for Atmosphere
Humboldt Deliverable A7.5-D3 (March 2010)
This document is the final version of atmosphere scenario. Compare to previous versions the scope has been extended. It contains the data model about air quality that is core to the HUMBOLDT Atmosphere Scenario (for this scenario also the name »Galileo Scenario« is used). In addition it shortly describes a number of data models, standards and projects relevant for Atmospheric data. There is also a change in the list of available data sources: because data of the EEA is now being used in the scenario, a short explanation of this data has been added.
The document is available as PDF (484 kB).
Profiles for Risk Management
Humboldt Deliverable A7.6-D3 (March 2010)

Process specification evaluation and improvement
Humboldt Deliverable A4.3-D2 (November 2009)
This deliverable comprises the processes for a collaborative software development. The transfer of the specifications expressed in Deliverable A4.2-D1 from abstractness to practicability was the purpose of the work carried out in the A4.3 period. In this period we have looked for the further improvement of the collaboration and fluid communication between Humboldt partners, in this sense, the establishment of methodologies and procedures to follow have been agreed among interested parties and are reflected in the current document. Additionally, a deep analysis of the used tools and actual needs in terms of applications for cooperation have been carried out, resulting on a complete technical infrastructure that reader can find described in one of the chapters of the current deliverable.

Concept of Data Harmonisation Processes
Humboldt Deliverable A7.0-D2 (October 2009)
This document contains the final version of deliverable A7.0 on the concept of the data harmonisation process. Its content is a description of the data harmonisation processing pipe as well as actual problems which occur in schema transformation, such as quality loss, changes in metadata, insufficient mapping functionality of tools and mapping languages, etc.
The document contains the experiences from a task force on conceptual schema translation, which was formed in the Humboldt project in early summer 2008 in order to perform extensive tests with existing methods and tools. Tests were carried out using mainly data and a use case from the ERiskA scenario, concerning the lake Constance region with data from two German states, Austria and Switzerland.
