1 AUT/ LHTEE ENV-e-CITY A short presentation Nicolas Moussiopoulos Aristotle University Thessaloniki, Greece

2 AUT/ LHTEE ENV-e-CITY background n Compliance of city authorities with EU environmental legislation u Need for efficient environmental assessments; these are only possible on the basis of sufficient and reliable environmental information. n Need to inform the citizen on the state of the environment n Support of environmental professionals, e.g. those involved in impact assessment studies

3 AUT/ LHTEE ENV-e-CITY project goals n Ultimate goal of project: u To create an internet-based brokerage infrastructure for public sector environmental information, available as a “turn-key” application via docking. n Relationship to other projects: u Innovative project acting as an extension of existing, “information production” projects (APNEE, IRENIE, AIR-EIA, APPETISE, etc.)

6 AUT/ LHTEE Thematic areas n Emissions n Air quality n Meteorology n Topography Overall scientific background: the SATURN project, the “urban” subproject of EUREKA/EUROTRAC-2 (http://lhtee.meng.auth.gr/saturn)http://lhtee.meng.auth.gr/saturn

7 AUT/ LHTEE SATURN: Studying atmospheric pollution in urban areas Objective: Objective: To substantially improve our ability of establishing source-receptor relationships at the urban scale.

8 AUT/ LHTEE Topography n Data exploring “web-worms” n Digital Elevation Maps n On-line available info (Land use + Topography) (http://edcdaac.usgs.gov/glcc/globdoc1_2.html)http://edcdaac.usgs.gov/glcc/globdoc1_2.html n Topography data on demand

9 AUT/ LHTEE Emissions n Data exchange Module for Emissions n City Emissions Estimator u using fuel consumption data, u based on traffic data, F overall vehicle usage, F analytical traffic network estimation.

10 AUT/ LHTEE Meteorology n Easy meteorological assessment u Pre-processors u Data selection wizard n Personalized weather info n EIA studies u Suggest tools u Provide links u Support on-line submission of data and retrieval of results

11 AUT/ LHTEE Air quality n Easy air quality assessment u Gaussian models (from emissions to AQ) u Model selection via MDS u Data requirements list based on assessment needs u Assessment method suggestion (on-line expert system) n Personalized Air Quality Indicators n EIA studies u Suggest tools u Provide links u Support on-line submission of data and retrieval of results

12 AUT/ LHTEE Technology n System architecture n Some component examples u Web-based application examples u WebGIS example

20 AUT/ LHTEE Competitive analysis n Competitors usersproviders u City and national authorities, but will become users and providers! n Strengths u Long IT experience in relevant projects and unique scientific skills in consortium n Weaknesses u Innovation vs. pragmatism: how to overcome the momentum of a “sleeping market?”

21 AUT/ LHTEE Exploitation aspects beginning n Involvement of major “clients” from the beginning of the project: u EEA’s Topic Centre on Air and Climate Change u Eurocities u EIA community  high viability potential after the project end. n Leading institutions with strong academic background, AND very strong commercial contacts via the consortium. already n ENV-e-CITY partners already provide commercially exploited products.

22 AUT/ LHTEE Self standing viability n ENV-e-CITY to become the core for a European Centre of excellence for the Urban Environment. n E-content & environmental information is a promising business opportunity. n Evidence regarding the viability of the idea: Environmental information are among the top of P.S.I. data costs in Europe and U.S., and can easily be combined with brokerage architectures. n ENV-e-CITY is an immaterialisation project, taking advantage of current trends regarding the sustainable information society (

33 AUT/ LHTEE Broker architecture (draft) 1/2 n Meta model of data and services u formats, reference/call, semantics, prising scheme, access type... n Docking station for services u basic services: no or low costs u added value services: prised services F hosting and operating costs of broker F service and provider fees u service chains for combined services F requires detailed interface specification

34 AUT/ LHTEE Broker architecture (draft) 2/2 n Type of services u request for (pre-generated) data F images, animations, maps, tables, infos, etc. u request for individual services F call of specific function (online or by order, result returned by , ftp,...) F chaining of services u if possible: service and data providers maintain their own data and service store F depends on execution time, Internet bandwidth and local resources
