This deliverable outlines the stakeholder requirements to define the H2OCEAN system and highlights the requirements for site selection. Design constraints and system boundaries and interfaces are identified, including as annex a detailed “Technical dimension Paper”. Also a first functional analysis of the H2OCEAN system has been undertaken

Deliverable 3.2 aims to collate publicly available, site relevant data that can be used to help define the site parameters and inform the GIS tool that will be delivered by the end of the H2OCEAN project. The database has been structured as a multi-filter spreadsheet. The first filter level is defined by the Project Sites; allowing the user to search for data relevant to a particular site. Other filters include variables, spatial extent, temporal extent and data format type. A description of the data is also included within the database. In addition, the database provides one or several web links directing the user towards web based databases, in which raw data related to the searched variables is contained. In order to facilitate the search, filters have been introduced for each entry of the spreadsheet enabling the user to customize their selection accordingly to each data search.

ACHIEVED: -

This report describes the aim, architecture, data and algorithms of the H2OCEAN site selection software tool. The software tool is a web based Geographic Information System (GIS) which integrates requisite data for optimal location selection, such as currents, water temperature, salinity, bathymetry, or wind and wave resource. It allows the user to visualize the values of several parameters relevant to the platform appropriate location and also diagnoses the suitability of a point to implement each of the different technologies investigated under the project framework. In the following sections, all the functionalities of the tool, including the hardware and software architecture, the databases used, and the algorithms are exposed. At the end of the report, an Annex explains how the tool works from a user perspective.
