Abstract [en]

The second deliverable of WP2 (D2.2) of the HERCULES project contains the outlines of the Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) for retrieving and linking archaeological, historical, and ecological data and geo-information to support the interdisciplinary study of landscape change. It reports on the current state of the infrastructural facility, as the content (data) and functionality (query, analysis and visualization functions) will be refined further in the process of the modelling conducted in three regional case studies (task 2.3) and inter-regional comparisons within the HERCULES project. The SDI outline defines an innovative SDI conceptualization and architecture, grounded in international SDI literature and the functionality and data needs of interdisciplinary research of the long-term development and transformation of cultural landscapes. Furthermore, it describes how the architecture has been implemented in order to achieve a user-centric facility that meets the demands of the WP2 researchers and their societal partners and that enables the SDI to be linked to the Knowledge Hub developed in WP7. The SDI outline subsequently deals with the following topics and issues: 1. A short description of its main aim and its relationship to the work being done in other WPs of the HERCULES project (Section 1); 2. A detailed description of an innovative methodology for the development of a usercentric SDI (Section 2) 3. An elaboration on the SDI architecture (technical components) implemented to support the researchers of WP2 (Section 3) 4. An elaboration on the SDI content (data) with specific reference to the modelling conducted in WP2 (Section 4)
