The goal of MobilDat projects project is to join to design and implement innovative mobile solution and mobile visualization for sharing and updating of spatial knowledge with special focus on forestry. The focus is not only on direct technological development but also on interoperability and standardization methods and tools for mobile data management. The main principles of such solution are:

To define and implement standards for sharing of knowledge in mobile data updating.

To build system on Mobile Web platform, such solution allowed offering access to information from any place and any time. Internet platform support universal data access using fixed and mobile connection and also offer basic communication interface for all applications

To use open platforms for building of this system and all its components. Only open platforms allow to build such universal solution, which will support effective development of such universal system and also future development

To define process models for defined groups of user and on the base of this functionality defines user profiles. The system of user profiles allow to prepare special solution for every group of user and very easy work with complex system

to create contextual visualisation of the user interface and the mapface content to update paricular map feature

To combine effective tools, which will offer information access, but also analytical tools, which will offer complex data analysis

To implement metadata model as effective tool for managing of knowledge, this will be able to describe all available data source, including data validity, data history and data source in all process. The metada records will attached automatically or semi-automatically during data capture or update.

To offer possibilities of access to distributed data source and so increase effectively of data access and data analysis. Using distributed data source is way of future more effective systems. From second side it request to build interoperable system, which allow this. The possibility is use OGC standards.
