Increasing numbers of natural disasters have demonstrated to the European Union the paramount importance of avoiding and mitigating natural hazards in order to protect the environment and citizens. Due to organisational and technological barriers, actors involved in the management of natural or man-made risks cannot cooperate efficiently. In an attempt to solve some of these problems, the European Commission has made "Improving risk management" one of its strategic objectives of the Information Society Technology (IST) research programme. The integrated project ORCHESTRA (Open Architecture and Spatial Data Infrastructure for Risk Management) is one of the projects that recently started in this area (IST Integrated Project no. 511678). The overall goal of ORCHESTRA is the design and implementation of an open, service oriented software architecture as a contribution to overcome the interoperability problems in the domain of multi-risk management.
Public information about the ORCHESTRA project is available under .
The present document defines the Reference Model for the ORCHESTRA Architecture (RM-OA). The RM-OA comprises the generic aspects of software architectures, i.e., those aspects that are independent of the risk management domain and thus applicable to other application domains.
Based on a glossary of architectural terms, the RM-OA is a self-contained document providing a specification framework for system architects, information modellers and system developers when designing service networks taking into account relevant standards from ISO, OGC and W3C.
The structure of the RM-OA specification follows the viewpoints of the ISO/IEC 10746-1 Reference Model for Open Distributed Processing.
