Technical realization of the analytical platform
KIT – Karlsruhe Institute of Technology,
The analytical platform (AP) provides means to coordinate analyses of experts and to communicate their insights to the public community in case of a nuclear emergency. The AP is realized as web application based on the third-party content management system Liferay, enhanced by specific tools in respect to the needs of radiological experts. The content management system was equipped with site and page templates thus allowing fast and structured setup of incident specific contents in case of an emergency. The tools fulfil a wide variety of purposes like e.g. the web-crawling service analysing the requests of the public community to allow the experts to be ahead of future concerns of the public. Also, a knowledge database of historic events to analyze the current situation and predict the potential development is included. As installing and configuring of the web content management system and its additional tools is tedious and error-prone, a simplification of the setup process is desirable. Hence, the platform is realized as a virtual machine, basically providing a full web-server environment including all required services by simply copying and installing one single file.
Key words: analytical platform / virtual machine / Liferay / content management system
