Environmental Linked Features Interoperability Experiment (ELFIE)


In recent years, environmental domain feature models have been established by a number of sub-domain groups. However, there is no best practice or standard methodology to encode documents containing links between and among domain features, such as a rivers, aquifers, or soils, and observational data about those features. A common approach to encoding such links is required to allow cross-domain and cross-system sharing and interoperability of such linked information.
