Introduction and Testbed Concept (Ken Keiser)

- Reviewed the agenda and provided purpose of the P&S

- Provided an overview of the current and past activities


Current Testbed Activities

Expert Skills Database (Rob Raskin)

- Testbed was funded through the ESIP front office

- Functions for ESIP members to create/edit their skills and levels

- Move it towards a production environment with a link from the ESIP homepage

- Need a review of the interface for future consideration


Unique Data Identifiers (Rob Raskin)

- Originated from the Preservation and Stewardship cluster

- EZID – DOI Catalog Service Systems

- DataCite – how best to cite data thru a metadata style. http://www.datacite.org/

- Preservation and Stewardship cluster is doing a paper and making a recommendation about what service could best fit the ESIP community

- Used EZID API to view and update DOIs of glacier photograph metadata


Semantic Registration of data and services (Kai Liu)

- Online interface for semantic registration of datasets and other web resources

- User login and ontology upload. Use cases for project

- University of Texas at El Paso – using ESIP ontology ~ product of semantic web cluster


Application-specific portals and GMU overall participation (Phil Yang)

- GMU developed the web portal architecture and manages the GEOSS Clearinghouse. Their group is also doing development for the Geospatial Platform.

- Climate@Home – citizen science for climate change

- SilvarCarbon – forest and terrestrial carbon management


Future (proposed tasks)

Plans for new portal environment (Ken and others)

- Better web visibility and access

- Improve ability to host and support projects

- Drupal based environment

- Configuration Board to oversee tasks/activities


Federated Discovery task (Hook Hua)

- Work from the discovery cluster – OpenSearch, Data Casting, Service Casting

- Multiple data centers have the above implementations

- Established a governance process – community based approach

- Interoperability testing: conformance to specification

- Provide a common platform for advertisement in testbed – host in testbed, have an association of data to services and mashups.

- Having people register their service feeds

- Peter Fox addresses that OpenSearch was not specifically designed for ESIP. That is why it is good to have a testbed for a comparative assessment of these technologies that would best benefit ESIP.


Data Stewardship (Nancy)

- Permanent identifiers – The Preservation cluster looked at different schemes

- Report addressed the identifiers

- Planned activities: determine if ID schemes and/or best practices can be recommended

- Look at 2 different data sets and address implementation issues

- How best to advertise their activities to ESIP users?


Information Quality (Tyler Stevens/Gregory Leptoukh)

- Data Quality measures


Open discussion on new topics and ideas (all)

- Use the testbed to help facilitate the collaborator activities
