Project Description

The goal of this project is to develop an interdisciplinary topic map to facilitate understanding and research of the impact of the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill Incident. Two sub- topic maps are to be developed, a generic, basic-level one for the general public, journalists, and government officials; and a specific, interdisciplinary one for oil spill researchers. The specific, interdisciplinary topic map is expected to not only facilitate understanding of the specific impacts, but will also facilitate knowledge discovery through interdisciplinary knowledge fusion.
