Short description:

The client-side of the tool is a web-based system. Users can access the toolset by their web browsers. The final version runs on all major browsers at www.biomasstools.eu.
The database containing all data generated by the project to be integrated into the tool is designed with PostgreSQL 9.4 and PostGIS 2.0 geospatial extension. The application server runs on Apache Tomcat software. The CMS (Content Management System) runs on Liferay software. The mapping software in the tool to be used is GeoServer.
All server-side components are open source products that run under Linux and under Windows. Apache Tomcat, version 7.0.68, is the application engine for tailor-made Java components and for the Liferay Content Management System and for the GeoServer mapping engine. For Liferay version 6.2 is used. For Geoserver version 2.7.2 was installed.
The S2BIOM toolset will be available in at least the next 5 years in the current version at www.biomass-tools.eu. It will be maintained to the current standard and it will be ensured that server up-dates are checked in order to keep the S2BIOM toolset available. Alterra-DLO (now called Wageningen Environmental Research (WenR)) will be the main responsible for keeping the toolset accessible and maintained to the current standard. In addition, there will be new follow-up activities that will enable a further up-date and extension of data in the S2BIOM database and further applications of the S2BIOM tools. Two Horizon 2020 have already been approved which build on the data and provide a new case study application of the S2BIOm tools.
