In order to improve the information available to the public on climate change in the Pyrenees, as well as to appraise the results of the project and create a common tool for accessing and sharing quality information, this action will provide the OPCC with a specialised web page called a cartographic portal.
This portal will showcase the OPCC and reflect the work of the CTP with the view of obtaining of a deeper understanding of climate change and the adaptation of its territories addressed to all decision makers, local stakeholders and citizens of the CTP territory and Europe. It also acts as a work and exchange tool for project partners and its associated structures.
It will be used specifically for:
-Structuring and presenting the data/studies available and the work carried out by the OPCC thanks to the IT tools and adapted cartographic.
-continuously feed acquired knowledge.
For this purpose, 4 basic functions will be developed:
- a catalogue of data: With this tool it will be possible to recover and make an inventory of all the different sources of geographical and other information so that standard access to reliable and up-to-date information is permanently available.
- cartographic data display: A tool will make it possible to display border maps for project action matters,
-Geolocalisation of studies and climate change projects: A cartographic tool will provide the perimeters of registered studies as well as running projects at a cross border level.
- a directory of stakeholders that participate in climate change.
Alongside the creation of these 4 tools, additional actions will be developed to ensure the management and smooth running of the services provided by this cartographic portal (ensuring that the formats meet international standards and the regulations of the European directive INSPIRE, creation of standard methodology for presenting and sharing information that will be directed to OPCC collaborators, the management and maintenance of the server, the monitoring of data and services and user support)
To create IT tools that will structure and appraise the works of the OPCC.
The web page of the climate change observatory comprises a platform of data exchange to verify, analyse and share information relating to climate evolution in the Pyrenees Massif.
-find out about the impact of climate change on the Pyrenees and the actions put into place to counteract such impacts.
- get to know and locate other climate change stakeholders within the Pyrenees Massif.
-gain access to available data and complete studies.
-display geographical climate change data and locate OPCC actions in a Cross Border Cartographic Interface.
- by uploading and providing a description of data, studies and projects in a secure server, thanks to the compatibility of Catalogues with international interoperability standards
-Start-up of four search and contribution tools for different types of information (geographical data, climate change actors, studies, projects) all within a secure environment.
-Structuring of a cross border Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) which allows the user to consult the catalogue and display within the cartographic tools itself the data coming from different collaborators (interoperability of databases).
-Drafting of a methodological guide aimed at collaborators on the use of portal functions.
-Support for POCTEFA partners in the start-up and diffusion in international and INSPIRE formats of data generated within the framework of respective actions,
1. Creation of the OPCC’s cartographic portal and its functionalities:
-IT platform for exchange, diffusion and harmonised presentation of geographical data flows (interoperability)
-data display platform (cartographic interface)
-geo-catalogue for storing, introducing and retrieving information concerning OPCC data.
-catalogue of studies
-a yearbook of climate change stakeholders
2. Creation of a common methodology for presenting and sharing information that will be directed to OPCC collaborators.
3. Collection of geographical data and metadata (direct search, “harvest” of current catalogues, repatriation of data inventoried by the OPCC and the SIG-Pyrenees) for the portal’s launch.
4. Support for the diffusion of the data generated by the partners within the project framework and data necessary for carrying out actions.
5. Creation of the “General public contributions” function
6. Development of the “export pdf” and “print” functions in the cartographic tool.
7. Management and maintenance of the server and application software.
Work relating to this action will be managed by APEM, in partnership with CTP.
