  International Council for Science   CODATA- Committee on Data for Science and Technology   --------------------------------------------------------------------------------   The Committee on Data for Science and Technology (CODATA) was established in 1966 by theInternational Council of Scientific Unions.   Working on an interdisciplinary basis, CODATA seeks to improve the quality, reliability, processing, management and accessibility of data of importance to science and technology.(readmore) Data and Knowledge in a Changing Worlds   The Quest for a Healthier Environment   Section: I7.C6 - proceeding page 151-152Chambery, 18-22 September, 1994 A Conceptual Superstructure of Knowledge Quality and Content in Organisation, Management and Awareness Heiner Benking - Wolf Dieter Grossmann Abstract: Schemes are proposed that allow mapping of knowledge, including data, over scales, qualitative scopesand time. Knowledge thus becomes located within common frames or reference or co-ordinates.Knowledge is put into various interlinked "scapes", in particular real-world and master imaginarymindscapes, combined we call them a knowledge panorama. One such organisation or reference systemdo integrate views and frames is the ECO-CUBE . Here, interlinked projections can for example be donefor a eye's view and mind-eye's view,  with emphasis on stereoscopic design and object management inrepositories. Master mindscapes may also decompose into 2nd order mindscapes.The quality of the mapping and its practical applicability are increased if objects, entities and 2ndgeneration information are put into spaces or scapes that allow to trace source, context, neighbourhoodsand srcinal intentions of the knowledge. These spaces and scapes can be organised as slots ormultidimensional lattices. Multimedia-based visualisation of these organisational forms allows toilluminate and visually depict relationships between cells in these spaces and scapes. This type of abstractspatial thinking needs training. It can be considered "diagonal" because it bridges and combines in atransdisciplinary sense, different domains. It is based on logical and practical exploratory approaches toboth, objects and issues in the real world and in imaginary or prospective realms.One main objective is to allow and support perception of temporal change, magnitude and semantic issuesby focusing on consequences and relationships trough conceptualisation and imagination.This paper is also based on theory of design of interfaces and discussion of mental models and cognitiveviewpoints. Beside review of implications of physical and mental positions forming a picture, theperspective (eye, mind's eye, fish eye) and representation of proportions are critical. This proposalcomposes from facets a pan-scopic point of view. It bridges canyons between coded- and non-coded,symbolic and sub-symbolic representation of real, abstract, and imaginary scopes. This includes analysisof access and assimilation of concepts to the effects of spatial and spacial differentiation and their impacton communication.A generalisation of the Rubik'scube of Ecology or "ECO-CUBE" are quad-tree ,  or R-tree/cell-treelayouts. These layouts become necessary to handle continuos scale, with the possibility for planning andzooming like in optical systems, in the field of environment, or design of world-views or pictures of theworld. The generalised pictures here must be simple, consistent, comprehensive and must allow detailingwith variable foci and variable compositions of topics. Different, fluent scaling becomes possible with nested frames (an AI-term that refers to one particular view of reality). These nested frames, nested withrespect to size, scope and even time (fast processes within slow processes) are called hyper-frames.Applications range from data management to project management, harmonisation of systems withsubsystems, communication, education to support of awareness.
