Lisbon was the place selected to organise the mid-term meeting about the GI-N2K project gathering almost all consortium partners (31). During two days (10-11th March), partners got an overview of the project’s different Work Packages (WPs) and discussed about the next steps. The workshop agenda was organised in two tracks: one devoted to WP2 regarding the Revision strategy for the BoK, and the other track contained three other Work Packages: WP3- VirLaBok, WP4- Use cases, testing & validation and WP8 -Exploitation.
UJI is co-responsible for the development activities in WP3, where a curriculum and job profile tool are being built on top of the new Geographic Information Science & Technology (GIS&T) Body of Knowledge (BoK) platform. Using these tools, stakeholders will be able to browse the BoK, and use BoK concept and relationships to define curricula and formulate job profiles. Further during WP3/WP4/WP8 tracks, tutorials and practical sessions regarding the BoK platform were given, and use cases and dissemination were discussed.
During the Revision strategy track, partners did a brainstorming about GIS&T Body of Knowledge, detecting the necessity for restructuring some of the existing BoK Knowledge Areas (KA), as well as defining a new one. The agreements taken will serve as the kick-off for starting discussing about topics, units and concepts at KA expertise level, in which UJI is leading the group of experts regarding “data manipulation”. Other important decisions were to fix the Revision strategy to follow and next steps to do, as well as next deadlines.
GEOTEC is looking forward for the second half of the project, in which geo-experts will work together to concretize the new version of the Body of Knowledge, and the foreseen software tools will be developed.
