CROSS Harmonization & HPC modelization of FOREST Datasets


As a general summary, Cross-Forest aims to develop Digital Service Infrastructures – DSI – services oriented towards: 

(I) predicting forest fires behavior and spreading through precise information on combustible materials, forestry maps and propagation models that need HPC resources to run properly;

(ii) forestry evolution models on country-Level. 

The foundations of those services will be forestry and GIS datasets that come from Portugal and Spain.

In order to fulfill the aforementioned goals, Cross-Forest will produce a common forest data ontology across Academia and Public Administrations from Portugal and Spain. Cross-Forest will also provide a public endpoint exposing Forest Data, according to the produced model. In this regards, the published data and the foundation model will constitute one of the main outcomes of Cross-Forest project.
