Based on the contents in the SEE-IN KB, the Analyse menu currently allows three generic types of analyses:
- Prioritization: Provides a quantitive measure of the relevance of entries in the Requirements relation and other relations, which supports prioritization decisions. The measure for the relevance of an entry A is based on the number of other entries in the SEE-IN KB depending on entry A (as captured by entries in the Links relation) and the strength of these dependencies.
- Gap analysis: Provides information to what extent requirements can be met based on relevant activities, data sets or services. A gap analysis in terms of observational system gaps is based on the core question of whether a specific observational requirement can be met with existing data or products. This question cannot be answered based only on the information published in the SEE-IN KB. A search for data that meet, or exceed, the characteristics specified for the observational requirement is initiated through the Discovery and Access Broker (DAB), and the results are used to assess the matches and gaps.
- Relevance: Determines the societal relevance of data sets based on the relevance of the requirements met by a data set. After a Gap analyses, the societal relevance of the data sets identified is computed based on the relevance of the requirements met. A future alternative will also allow to determine relevance of data sets and services through the DAB and the GEO Portal.
It is planned to add more analysis functions in the near future:
- Value Chains: offers several tools to construct value chains.
