The project started the 1st October 2006, and will have the duration of 24 months.
The WP1 will assure the project management, and will be co-ordinated by the IST.
The technical work will be developed in the WP2 to WP6. The requirements, design and evaluation tasks will involve all the partners. The technical developments will be assured by the IST.
The WP2 will be coordinated by the UPM, and will design and develop a multilingual and temporal gazetteer. The work will follow the existing or emerging standards, and will integrate as many as possible existing information and data structures.
The WP3 will develop a module to import descriptive metadata from external catalogues and other sources, as also services for the local editing of metadata. Multiple metadata formats will be supported. This work will be coordinated by the KBR/BRB.
The WP4 will be coordinated by the UPM, and develop the indexing services, according to the used metadata schemas. These indexes will support the search and browse services.
The WP5 will design and develop the user interfaces. Multiple strategies will be explored for this service. This work will be coordinated by the KBR/BRB.
The WP6 will be coordinated by the IST, and design and develop web services to make it possible for DIGMAP to be accessed by external services.
The WP7 will be coordinated by the NLE, and it is the tasks where the evaluations will take place.
The WP8 will promote a network of contacts with relevant external experts, who will be invited to express their own opinions about the purpose, methodologies, proposals and results of the project. This external advising group will be coordinated by the BNCF.
