For explanation, please find here an extract from a recent official project document:
"The four-year EU project Humboldt contributes to the implementation of a European Spatial Data Infrastructure (ESDI) that integrates the diversity of spatial data available for a multitude of European organizations. It is the aim of this project to manage and advance important parts of the implementation process of this ESDI. An essential element of the project is the development of scenarios in which the different HUMBOLDT components are applied and tested under realistic conditions. These scenarios are based on applications in different environment-related use cases. The scenarios are both a test bed and a community-driven research environment, which assist in the development and promotion of the project’s objectives. Currently, the following application scenarios are being addressed by the HUMBOLDT partnership. They are organized along the core themes defined for GMES:
• Border Security: Enabling Effective Border Control and Security in Rural Areas
• Urban Planning: European Urban Management Information Systems
• Forest: Saxony & Czech Cross-Border Forest Scenario
• Planning: Management of Protected Areas of Regional Parks
• ERiskA: Environmental Risk
• Water: Water Management
• Ocean: Oil/Contaminants spill crisis impact and management
• Galileo: GALILEO Integration for Atmospheric Data Distribution
With the mid-term call for scenarios, the HUMBOLDT project has the possibility to support the scenario work with additional funding. For more information on the HUBOLDT project please refer to"
