addresses core challenges related to the European Big Data Vision towards increasing our abilities to acquire, integrate, process, analyse and visualize data-in-motion and data-at-rest in integrated manners.

will address requirements from the air-traffic management and maritime domains by developing advanced tools for detecting and visualizing threats, abnormal activity, increasing the safety and efficiency of operations related to vessels and airplanes, and further reducing the impact of these operations on the environment.


The datAcron Ontology documentation

Motivated by real-life emerging needs in critical domains, the datAcron ontology provides a coherent and generic representation of semantic trajectories, in association with related events and contextual information. The main contribution of this ontology is the representation of semantic trajectories at different levels of spatiotemporal analysis. The ontology documentation is available online.
