A series of "virtual workshops" are being organized in order to help the air quality community establish best practices and conventions for implementing data format and exchange standards (e.g., netCDF-CF and OGC WCS)in order to advance the level of interoperability among air quality information systems and projects.

The objectives of the virtual workshops are to

  • publish and expose existing services from multiple providers,
  • compare standards implementations, explore differences, address challenges and reconcile differences in implementations
  • agree on 'AQ Community' conventions and define guidance that harmonize the implementation of standards-based services

The concept of the virtual workshops is to foster interaction among the air quality community through semi-formal workshops that take advantage of remote meeting technologies and allow productive exchanges among the participants while residing in distributed physical locations.

Virtual Workshop 1

AIRNow

  • REST services: xml, csv, kml, json, netCDF
  • OGC WCS for point data, returns AQI surrogate data
  • OGC WCS for point, time-point, and grid
  • Issues/questions:
    • web services require authentication (using API key)
    • payload options and formats (netCDF is evolving)
    • need to make things uniform
