This report is an accompanying document to the CANDELA platform with the objective to list the content of the first version of the platform and to provide a user guide describing how to use all the features provided by the platform.
The current version of the document (the first release took place in December 2018) has been updated following the requirements from the first project review meeting. The main evolution in the second version of D3.3 is the addition of section 2. After the previous version of the platform, several tools have been integrated.
The document is structured as follows:
- In section 1, a release note presents the components that are available for this version, and how to access them.
- In section 2 it is presented the functional architecture of the CANDELA platform and how the different components implement this architecture. It is also described the links between CANDELA and past or present projects like SparkInData, EO4wildlife, or EUXDAT. Finally, section 2 also includes a chapter about compatibility of CANDELA with other DIAS (Copernicus Data and Information Access Service).
- Section 3 presents first a user guide to help user to familiarize with the development environment, then it describes the CANDELA library, that is a tool to interact with the data analytics and management services offered by the platform.
