Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)


The FirstDIG [1] project is a collaboration between First plc [2] and the National e-Science Centre (NeSC) [3] as represented by EPCC [4]. The project aims to deploy an early implementation of the OGSA Data Access and Integration services (OGSA-DAI) [5] within the First South Yorkshire bus operational environment. The project has two central goals. The first is to demonstrate the deployment of OGSA-DAI services in a commercial environment, and learn from this process. The second goal is to answer specific business questions posed by First through a short data mining analysis using the OGSA-DAI service enabled data sources. The project started in May 2003 and will run through to January 2004. This paper describes the project and its current status as of August 2003.
