The digital knowledge platform created, based on ESRI ArcGIS Hub, it’s a true collaborative spatial data infrastructure that aims to provide easy, fast, and transparent access to data and knowledge, helping to understand the complexity of the challenges facing the wine sector in the Douro Demarcated Region, across decision makers, organizations and citizens bridging the gap between all the actors in the value chain. Providing descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive analytics from grape to bottle.
The platform is an important tool for supporting decision-making and an essential instrument in the transfer of knowledge concerning the sustainability of wine production in a such unique UNESCO World Heritage region. Adding that the land under vines is worked by approximately 20000 farmers, each owning an average of 2ha. Small farmers are very representative in the production of Porto Wine and constitutes the more important and at the same time more vulnerable actors in the chain of value.
It will transform the way of engagement and collaboration with the community, providing data share, access, and interactive visualization through open data catalog, embedded interactive analytical dashboards and spatial applications. Allowing for all the value chain actors to know trough data the region and to support decision making from the grape bottle. Adding purpose to data by integrating predictive and prescriptive analysis.
