NextGEOSS User Feedback Service for Providers-Users Interactions



  •  NiMMbus and NextGEOSS Geospatial User Feedback
  • NextGEOSS User Feedback inclusion and accessibility in the NEXTGEOSS catalogue at several aggregation levels
  • NextGEOSS User Feedback inclusion in the Disaster Risk Reduction service
  • NextGEOSS User Feedback inclusion in the Habitat Modelling service and portals: current situation and future approach
  • Reproducible usage in action: the ECOPotential web map example

What: In this webinar you will learn about the general User Feedback mechanism and about the NiMMbus system developed within the NextGEOSS project. It has a special focus on the way it allows to store reproducible usage and thus, help users to collectively build a knowledge hub for the benefit of users across disciplines, services, applications. etc. Moreover, the experience of several data and service providers, including the NiMMbus system will be explained, especially highlighting the advantages for them as well as for users when using the system or the data.

Why now: NiMMbus, the NextGEOSS Geopspatial User Feedback service developed in NextGEOSS has been extended to include reproducible usage, that can be used to store knowledge created by users. Moreover, the widget to include the NextGEOSS Geopspatial User Feedback connection in any portal has also been extended, so it is a moment to rethink new uses of the portals’ connection to GUF in order to explore all the functionalities it offers now.

Who is it for: Data providers and data users coming from  NextGEOSS or external pilots, EuroGEO initiative showcase participants, DIAS portals, other H2020 projects in the GEOSS orbit
