DGIWG has a large amount of information and knowledge resources
that has been organized into a Knowledge Base to provide the foundation
and source of information and knowledge for key DGIWG activities
in outreach to its user community.
The Knowledge Base is a set of files organized in a file structure
based on the DGIWG Architecture Framework. Each file contains a
manageable chunk of information or “information object”.
File formats can consist of:
- MS Word files
- MS PowerPoint files
- MS Access files
- HTML files
- Text files
- PDF, JPG and TIFF files
- Model files such Rose .mdl
Depending on user access privileges, these files can be accessed,
viewed, and downloaded.
To serve as a guide to the Knowledge Base, a Knowledge Base Metadata
Catalogue is available to search and browse information about Knowledge
Base content and to link to this content.
The content of the Knowledge Base originates from a wide variety
of sources: internal DGIWG work, member nations, and external bodies.
The sources and copyrights of Knowledge Base material are indicated
in the Metadata Catalogue. See also the general statement about
copyrights for this Web site. Only publicly available material and
DGIWG owned material is made available for public access. Material
within the member only portion of the Knowledge Base may be covered
by MoUs and other agreements.
