Information Systems - survey
EMPHASIS-PREP develops an inventory of local information systems by collecting available protocols, definition of formats, recorded metadata, databases storing phenotypic, environmental, genetic characterisations and/or systems providing visualization and evaluation capabilities. We will then analyse the available systems and the data heterogeneity: facilities in controlled conditions gather information on individual plants at time steps of a few hours to one day, those in heavily equipped fields gather information based on detailed imaging on canopies at time-steps of days, and those in fields with lean phenotyping gather information on canopies at time steps of weeks.
The map of existing information systems will be the base for identifying :
- the adequate level of abstraction that will allow connection between related variables at different scales
- the minimum requirements needed for inclusion in an EMPHASIS e-Infrastructure
