AN INTEGRATED DECISION SUPPORT TOOL FOR EU POLICIES ON HEALTH, TRANSPORT AND ARTISTIC HERITAGE RECOVERY

Kanana Ezekiel, Farhi Marir

Abstract

In this paper, we describe an ongoing EU funded project (ISHTAR) that develops an advance integrated decision support tool (ISHTAR suite) for the analysis of the effects of long-term and short-term policies to improve the quality of the environment, citizen’s health and preservation of heritage monuments. From the background of the project, this paper goes on to explain the integration of information of a large number of tools aimed at semantic approach integration to allow European cities to make balanced decisions on a wide range of issues such as health, noise, pollution, transport, and historical monument. We also present and suggest solutions to the information integration problem resulted when attempting to represent and share information.
