On the 3rd of July a joint workshop on the WISDOM Information System was given for the Department of Water Resources Management. Subject of the workshop were the underlying theoretical concepts of Web GIS applications such as the WISDOM Information System, Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standards and services and looking into more detail into the concept of Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) as well as related administrative frameworks. This was followed by a practical workshop, illustrating how information can be derived from the Information System, processed in freely available GIS Software (QGIS) and how to disseminate the generated results through the WISDOM Information System. The feedback of the workshop from the participants was very positive and follow up workshops, building up on the achieved knowledge were agreed.
Some participants evaluated the workshop, which can be found here (sensitive data was removed, which appears black in the document).
