First Data Investigation on the Grid - FirstDIG

The FirstDIG project is a collaboration between First plc and the National e-Science Centre, as represented by EPCC. The project deployed an early implementation of the OGSA Data Access and Integration (OGSA-DAI) services within the First South Yorkshire bus operational environment. The project had two central goals. The first was to demonstrate the deployment of OGSA-DAI services in a commercial environment. The second goal was to answer specific business questions through a short data mining analysis of OGSA-DAI service-enabled data sources. The business questions were posed by First plc.

The project finished in February 2004. Further information on the project and its outcomes is available under Downloads and Dissemination
