European Forest Institute 1 Network for a European Forest Information Service (NEFIS) WP 4: EFI data sets Solsona, 22.03.04 Andreas Schuck European Forest Institute
2 EFI Data sets Long term forest resources data 1950-1990 (LTFRdb) (note: TBFRA 2000 is also available under LTFRAdb at EFI) EU socio economic data Forest products and trade flow data 1962-2001(2002) Forest Research Capacities in Europe (18 countries) optional: Database on Forest Disturbances in Europe
European Forest Institute3 All data sets are available through the WWW data is in SQL database Interface programmed in PHP most data can be extracted in.CSV extraced results from all db’s are query based Data availibility Data format statistical datasets text based (metadatabase)
European Forest Institute4 Data structure Relational database structures Each db has its own individual structure based on the given data Example forest products trade flow data Data ID reporting country partner country year.... Country ID name.... Country group ID name.... Country group member Group ID Country ID Product ID name....
European Forest Institute5 Interface – LTFRAdb (1)
European Forest Institute6 Interface Forest Products Trade Flow db
European Forest Institute7 Regional forest resource and socio-economic statistics in European Union countries (db)
European Forest Institute8 Forest research capcities in 18 European countries
European Forest Institute9 Polygon maps Problem with time series (change of country borders); What would be a technical solution (Sergey; Simo)
European Forest Institute10 Is the visualisation toolkit sufficient for your purposes? Generally speaking : yes Time series: EFIS VTK did not fully satisfy in particular with regards to time series; Recent version of CommonGIS has many advanced features in particular in working with time series
European Forest Institute11 Further features that should be included? Metadata display as ‘pop-up’ window should be always available when working with datasets Print options? Polygon map building (in particular related to time series data) Options for loading different data sets into the EFIS/CommonGis (e.g. socio economic data and forest resources or trade data from two individual data sources for use in one application) Edit function for attribute names System allows to calculate new values and display or use them for further processing; function for extracting all values to other programme (e.g. excel)?
