From the user and contextual research undertaken by the Odyssey project a key policy development has to be that of identifying, defining and establishing key standards for data exchange. The Odyssey Project – Understanding and Implementing User Needs 33 Next steps As an information system the Odyssey platform demonstrates the possibilities for EU member states in combatting gun crime through a pan-European approach to sharing data. The system incorporates the use of advanced data mining techniques enriched with semantic technologies.
Finally, the platform operates on a very specific domain, which enables the concentration of explicit problems, constantly evaluating outcomes, and suggesting the most promising solution. The fully implemented version of the platform has the potential to fill a major gap in cross-national investigation and security systems. National police forces would be able to increase their investigation potential by accessing the refined data and graphically represented data patterns. Moreover, the Odyssey platform is structured as a framework which could be easily replicated for other forensic data sets as well as applied to different domains, thus re-defining the standards of information exploitation for large data sets.
Local nodes The local node is the primary repository within the platform. The local node has a PostgreSQL relational database which holds data about ballistic items and crimes within a particular jurisdiction. The database is accessed through a local message queue and an endpoint which parses incoming requests and translates them into SQL commands which are then applied to PostgreSQL. The local node routes “agency to CEON” and “agency to agency” communication. Using the Odyssey platform authorities are able to share secure messages including queries and their results.
