This paper describes the development and evaluation of a data model to store events that occur within monitored environments. The overall aim is to standardize the transfer of environment events, captured from heterogeneous sources. A case study is presented that focuses on behavioral events exhibited by children with autism. The paper focuses on describing the methodology adopted for acquiring user requirements, classifying the keywords common to a range of data sources, and consequently developing a suitable data model that has the flexibility to accommodate the addition of new data types. Also provided is a description of the resulting XML-based schema that defines the constraints on the data to ensure conformity to the data model.
