EMDS Online represents our evolution from EMDS being a single user analysis tool to becoming a interactive and collaborative decision support workbench. In our first edition, we are moving the main analysis engines
and tools to a series of web services called the EMDS Framework. From these services, a web frontend is being developed to allow for teams to create new EMDS projects, build and run analysis, share comments between
team members, and provide tools to build storyboards to help others to understand the project and its work to others. We will be in Alpha stages through the end of February, and plan to have the services up by the
end of March. We will then be focusing on the user experience over the next several months, and plan to have a release in Summer, 2021.
This is an exciting time for us, where we are moving towards a system that allows for true geodesign and decision support in one system. We will be adding additional technologies over the next year or two to allow for
ML processing, leveraging the power of knowledge graphs and Open Knowledge Networks, and custom reporting.
