Title EarthCube - Brokering: A Way Forward for Global Multi-disciplinary Data Sharing
Abstract Brokering is a means of mediating interactions across heterogeneous multidisciplinary data sources and services. A distinguishing characteristic is that brokering shifts the burdens of enabling interoperability from users and providers to a third party service. Brokering can take many forms and involve many different types of services: translating and interpreting between search protocols, controlled vocabularies and natural languages, business processing models, etc. This session will report on current EarthCube activities related to brokering, explore some of the current brokering approaches and implementations, and look a bit into some of the future types of brokering possibilities that may help in fully achieving global multi-disciplinary data sharing.
