Work Package 4 - ENVIRONMENTAL BASELINE TOOL
Lead: DMP. Co‐lead: Rambøll
An environmental baseline tool will be developed to support better and faster environmental baseline studies (WP4). The tool will be implemented in the existing Danish Environment Portal run by a cooperation of Danish municipalities, regions and the Ministry of Environment. The environmental baseline will be based on a GIS‐based platform for an easy identification of environmental baseline information in a specific geography. Information from existing EA reports, general environmental reports and research articles will be retrieved using machine learning. The project’s models will be based on word, character, named entity and citation‐based representation of documentation with linkage to knowledge graphs and enable users to search for individual facts across documents. To make this possible the content of the EA reports will be labelled and annotated by EA experts. Data processing will be based upon open source and Azure cloud components. The project will thus take advantage of DMP’s investment in software components targeting the needs of the Danish environment sector.
The specific tasks are:
Task 4.1 Clarification of baseline requirements and data
Task 4.2 Advancing and testing the baseline database
