FDOT District 5 Regional ITS Architecture (Final)

Functional Requirements: Virtual Data Warehouse Services


Description: This equipment package provides capabilities to access "in-place" data from geographically dispersed archives and coordinate information exchange with a local data warehouse. While many of the functions performed by this equipment package are similar to the functions inherent in other archived data management subsystem equipment packages (e.g. data management, fusion, analysis) this equipment package also provides the specialized publishing, directory services, and transaction management functions associated with coordinating remote archives. In addition, this equipment package performs functions on an as-needed basis, thereby negating the need to maintain the comprehensive set of data from the remote archives in the local data warehouse.
Functional Requirements:
  1. The center shall provide capabilities to access "in-place" data from geographically dispersed archives. These capabilities may include analysis, data fusion, or data mining.
  2. The center shall coordinate information exchange with a local data warehouse.
  3. The center shall provide the specialized publishing, directory services, and transaction management functions associated with coordinating remote archives.
  4. The center shall support the collection of archived data from other archives on an as-needed basis. (This minimizes the need to duplicate the comprehensive set of data from the remote archives in the local data warehouse.)
  5. The center shall use data collected from different archives to build a set of global schema including the data archive definitions for the local archive plus any archives known to the local archive.
  6. The center shall provide the local archived data schema to other archive systems.
