KNOWLEDGE MOBILIZATION TO SUPPORT ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT - A Model and an Application

Julián Garrido, Juan Gómez-Romero, Miguel Delgado, Ignacio Requena

Abstract

EIA is a complex problem due to the wide range of different human impacts, the amount of different environmental indicators to measure the effect of an impact, and the correlation among them. In this paper we propose an application to support knowledge mobilization in Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) based on a formal model to represent relevance between context descriptions and domain-knowledge subsets. The CDS (Context-Domain Significance) pattern allows building a tool to assist in the data collection phase to establish the relevant indicators in a particular scenario.
