Requirements for the Earth Information Exchange will be established by users. The first stage in this process is to establish user's "wish lists" by capturing scenarios of use in plain language as described by the users themselves. In the next stage, domain experts expand this description into a more formal Use Case description that will drive the development of the Exchange.
We are developing two types of use cases: one addressing areas of societal need, and the other showing the interface and underlying components that might be applied to address this need.
Type 1: Earth Science Solutions Use Cases
Scenarios that capture opportunities to apply Earth science for public benefit will drive resource allocations. For example, this page provides a point of access for the Use Cases under development by NASA's ESDS Technology Infusion Working Group in support of ESIP Federation application area technology activities. Use cases of known data access and/or data production activities are needed to identify web services and chaining scenarios for future implementation. And may also provide reference use cases for the development of capabilities within the Earth Information Exchange or other Federation activities including proposals developed by Federation members.
- Use Case 1: SolutionsUseCase_AirQuality-Atmosphere_Smoke_1a
Air Quality Implementation Sandbox (scenario details, wish list, etc.)
Note: The current Air Quality example needs to be pasted into the new template (see new entry suggestions immediately below): Air Quality Use Case (Old Format)
Note: in progress
- Use Case 4: SolutionsUseCase_CoastsOcean_Arctic_1a
- Use Case 6: SolutionsUseCase_CoastsOcean_Arctic_2a
- Use Case 7: SolutionsUseCase_Wildfires_atmosphere_1a
Enter new UseCase: Please refer to the following page to author a new Solutions Use Case: SolutionsUseCase_Entry

Type 2: Technology Use Cases
(currently only some of the use cases have been converted to Wiki format, the remainder are Word documents)
