General information

Name of the solution: Cartography Tool

Solution's owner: Euopean Commission (DG informatics) - ISA² Programme

Description:

The Cartography Tool (CarTool©) brings together high-level support for the EIRA© as a plug-in for the popular ArchiMate® modelling tool Archi®. It includes both editing features, to model solutions using the EIRA©, and querying functionalities to query an EIRA©-based Cartography of solutions. CAMSS Team.

The Cartography Tool implements the following:

Cartography Tool implements the following EIF recommendations as explained below:

  • Recommendation 6 | Reusability

    The CarTool can be used to support the development of ICT solutions as it allows its users to browse and analyse the already existing reusable solutions. 

  • Recommendation 8 | Technological neutrality and data portability

    The CarTool does not impost the use of any specific technology and the 'Create a solution' function is fully based on open standards.

  • Recommendation 19 | Assessment of effectiveness and efficiency

    CarTool gives users access to existing EIRA and SAT solutions, allowing users to assess and compare them before selecting one. 

  • Recommendation 23 | Interoperability governance

    CarTool aids its users in the selection process of standards by giving them access to the list of proposed interoperability standards and specifications.

  • Recommendation 27 | Legal interoperability

    CarTool supports its users in the assessment of ICT implications in new legislation by to assess ICT by allowing them to search related solutions in the solutions’ Cartography. 

  • Recommendation 34 | Model

    CarTool allows its users to model solutions using EIRA, and querying features to query an EIRA-based Cartography of solutions. The use of CarTool helps its users to implement the EIF conceptual model

  • Recommendation 44 | Catalogues

    CarTool allows its users to model solutions using EIRA, and querying features to query an EIRA-based Cartography of solutions. The use of CarTool helps its users to implement the EIF conceptual model.
