Objectives and Approach
The main objectives of the HERMES project are to:
- Indicate, by means of the development of application-driven demonstrators, how a quick and efficient interaction cycle between selected environmental experts and the system (based on the display of data in a form directly understandable by the experts) could result in effective planning for urban areas.
- Define an integrated environment to support strategic and tactical planning activities which combines mathematical models, heuristic knowledge and geographical data, with the intention of facilitating the evaluation of alternatives and options in the field of land use planning.
- Generate the architecture of an environment for urban planning where decision-makers can easily build and evaluate scenarios of the impact of strategic and tactical planning decisions on urban areas in terms of social, economic and environmental aspects.
- Build scenarios from the interaction of mathematical models and textual/geographical databases, presented to the user by means of advanced graphical interfaces, in the form of thematic maps and other suitable visual metaphors.
The architecture will feature an advanced graphic user interface and will later be able to integrate model management systems, knowledge-based systems, and geographical and textual database management systems.
