Description

The EU-funded project INVISIP1 aims to create a framework to support all involved parties in thesite planning process: Municipal authorities and departments, planning offices, data suppliers and citizens.This paper describes the INVISIP approach, global aims and objectives as well as the current state of theproject. Here, from the technical point of view first results achieved within the analysis phase of the projecthave shown different possibilities to enhance data mining and visualization tasks by informationvisualization techniques using metadata and familiar metaphors. On the other hand, from the applicationdrivenpoint of view the necessity to establish an integrated framework for the site planning processproviding not only data handling techniques but also context information concerning the workflow, tasks andobjectives within the different site planning phases, is an important result of the case studies within the fourINVISIP partner countries (Germany, Italy, Sweden and Poland). Concerning this issue, the establishment ofa context repository and its usage within the proposed INVISIP architecture and the application scenario (siteplanning of a shopping center in a suburban area) will be discussed in detail.
