– The contribution of integrating interoperable data, for the orientation of urban developments


The evolution of databases and the generation of information of all types via a multitude of monitoring media, sensors, scanned imagery, etc., is a wealth of information commonly called “Big Data”.
Such a proliferation of technical, sociological or geographical data opens the door to increasingly “expert” analysis systems based on the interoperability of data.
In the context of the European reports an integrating tool for heterogeneous, geo-localized data from all European Union countries has been developed to automatically make data sets more reliable, to make the different sources interoperable, to harvest open access information and enable integrated analysis of results.
The cross-referencing of multiple data thus allows for correlated analyzes, making it possible to represent and identify the influencing factors on the quality of the discharges, or the receiving environment, on a European scale.
This type of tool can be generalized on the orientation and management of infrastructure.
